Since 2001, the Insurance Commission has provided funding to the National Centre for Asbestos Related Diseases (NCARD) for research into the early detection, prevention and treatment of diseases caused by asbestos and mesothelioma. The research is led by Professor Bruce Robinson.

The Insurance Commission funds NCARD's research as it provides industrial diseases insurance for employers engaged in mining in Western Australia.
