Fields of Research

A part of the IST’s mission as a research organisation, is to disseminate information about occupational health and to contribute to the scientific community’s continuous march towards greater knowledge on the subject. It must also provide regional and national actors in the field with analyses which are useful and pertinent to their work.

Within this framework, the Institute carries out applied research in its principal fields of expertise on occupational health. The fields fall within the domains of exposure sciences, environmental engineering, occupational medicine and the psychophysiology of emotions and performance in terms of human factors.

Alongside its academic research activities, the IST carries out contract analysis work for different health organisations.
