Research and Resources

The Centre for Research Expertise in Occupational Disease (CREOD) is dedicated to improving understanding and prevention of occupational disease. Our research addresses the full spectrum of the health and safety continuum: from prevention, through exposure assessment, early recognition, diagnosis, treatment, return-to-work, and outcomes. We work across disciplines and methodological paradigms to contribute to policy, knowledge, and practice in both the workplace and clinical settings.
