The vast majority of scientific findings and insights are published in scholarly journals that undergo rigorous screening processes called blind peer reviews. These screening processes ensure that the information published in these journals is credible and reliable. Peer reviewed journals are considered the foundation of academic research and professional knowledge.

The Centre for Safety and its associated staff regularly publish in prestigious journals on a range of topics. Whether you are from an industry, government, or academic background, these articles offer valuable insight and knowledge.
