  3. Develop and assess interventions for efficacy in reducing impact of identified risk factors
  4. Conduct a risk factor analysis that matches effective interventions for musician sub-groups
  5. Design and implement a series of studies that evaluate the effectiveness of specific interventions
  6. Apply findings to the development of OHS recommendations and guidelines for musicians
  7. Guide and support changes and new developments in OHS policy for musicians
  8. Assess cost-benefit and impact of interventions in terms of injuries, days lost from work and insurance premiums.
