About the British Occupational Health Research Foundation (BOHRF)
The British Occupational Health Research Foundation (BOHRF)is a non-profit, grant awarding charity established in 1991 to
contribute to the best possible physical and mental well-being of
Bringing employers and researchers together to produce robust
science and evidence-based work of practical value whose application
will contribute to the right of people at work to be 'healthy,
motivated and at work'.
BOHRF raises and deploys funds for:
- occupational health research of practical value
- practical guidelines based on evidence
to reduce the enormous cost to employers and workers of work-related illnesses in the UK.
In 2001, BOHRF established close links with the Faculty of
Occupational Medicine whilst remaining an independent charity. The
Faculty has established a Research Committee to identify scientifically
robust research proposals, which attempt to answer questions that will
assist the development of evidence-based occupational health practice.
This Committee advises and influences decision-making bodies, grant
awarding bodies (including BOHRF), private industry and the public
sector on research needs and priorities.
Their policy and strategy are determined by their Trustees, who are
also responsible for reviewing their risk management controls.
This project was underwritten by BOHRF thanks to corporate sponsor
donations. Subsequently, generous project funding was received from
almost all sectors having workers exposed to causes of occupational
asthma at work.
