Building strong evidence helps us understand where and why intervention is needed, and where we can make a difference. It enables us to create and demonstrate impact as we advance global engineering safety.
We aim to drive improvements in the availability, quality and accessibility of data, synthesis of evidence, and implementation of evidence into practice to improve safety outcomes.
Improving safety data: quality, availability and completeness
How can we improve the routine collection and accessibility of high quality safety data?
Synthesizing evidence to understand greatest need and what works
Where data is available, are we getting maximum insight from it?
Supporting evidence into practice
When we generate useful insights, how can we ensure they are acted upon by those with the power to make a difference?
Psychological wellbeing in a global context
Much of the focus within global safety is on physical health, despite the clear recognition that mental health is one of the major challenges of the current century.
Insights into action
How do we ensure that the World Risk Poll data are used effectively to make a difference to people’s lives?
What is the Evidence and Insight Centre?
Evidence-based approaches are helping policy makers to understand what works, where and why it works, and for whom.
The value of safety
If we cast our eye on the safety of the spaces we live and work in, the attached value would be exponential and challenging to qualify.
Evidence and Insight Team
Sarah joined Lloyd’s Register Foundation in Autumn 2019 as the founding Director of Evidence and Insight.
Prior to the Foundation, Sarah spent much of her career at NICE, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, working across a number of roles including establishment of NICE Connect – a major digital transformation programme including a data and analytics function.
Sarah has a PhD in immunology and has also worked briefly in medical writing and the health voluntary sector.
A statistician by training, Marcia has worked across the public sector helping organisations analyse, understand and add insight to their data.
As senior research and data analyst Marcia is bringing those skills to add to the Evidence and Insight for the Foundation across our challenge areas.
An economist by training, Davinder has worked in research, education and consultancy for the European Commission, financial and professional business sector (the Square Mile) for City of London Corporation, and retail real estate for a professional membership organisation.
Davinder is now enjoying a fresh challenge at the Lloyd's Register Foundation working with colleagues to build the Evidence and Insight function.
World Risk Poll
This first global study of public understanding and experiences of risk involves 150,000 individual interviews carried out in 142 countries.
Calls for funding
Our most direct means of achieving our mission is through awarding grants to research and education organisations.
