About CPWR

INSTITUTIONAL REVIEW BOARD 

Our Institutional Review Board (IRB) brings together experts in the field of occupational safety and health to assist CPWR in assessing the physical, economic and social risks to workers that may arise from our research projects. Although most of our research presents minimal risks, we are committed to protecting human subjects and data, including obtaining full consent for participation.
