Research is at the heart of what we do — discovering proven knowledge and practical methods to improve the environment, health and safety of employees and communities. The Campbell Institute recognizes opportunities to advance the science of EHS through original research.

The Institute released a new white paper, Serious Injury and Fatality Prevention: Leading Indicators, Cumulative Risk and Safety Networks — the third in a series on this emerging safety trend. This report introduces two frameworks to support serious injury and fatality (SIF) prevention efforts — cumulative risk assessment and social network analysis. Check out all of the Institute’s white papers.

With psychological safety top of mind in 2022, the Institute also put out a series of blog posts related to this topic:


Member and partner organizations share the Institute’s devotion to the fostering of safe and high-performing workplaces worldwide. Because of their support, we are able to continue our work of dispersing knowledge and best practices through original content, informative presentations and engaging events.

With the help of the Participation Subcommittee, we were happy to welcome Amentum in the past year.


In 2022, more than 1,100 EHS professionals attended a Campbell Institute event – either in-person or virtually – including the:

  • Campbell Institute Symposium: A ground-breaking event where attendees explore what lies ahead in the field of EHS
  • Annual Benchmarking meeting: A meeting dedicated to sharing best practices
  • Campbell Institute Executive Edge Track: An in-depth series focusing on emerging topics at the NSC Safety Congress & Expo
  • Webinars: Virtual presentations on emerging topics and the latest Campbell Institute research

We also launched On the Leading Edge, a monthly newsletter highlighting innovative work across all National Safety Council workplace initiatives. It is focused on trending safety topics and resources to help make the biggest impact in your workplace.
