What we do

The Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) is one of the world's leading providers of workplace health and safety research, training and consultancy. We employ over 350 scientific, medical and technical specialists.

We are an agency of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Carrying out investigations for HSE gives us unique insight into the causes of workplace accidents and ill-health.

We know that health and safety can't be5P Model considered in isolation. Central to any business are people and their interaction with plant (the site, equipment, tools), process (how you use the plant), product (what you produce) and place (the working environment you are in).

We have been developing health and safety solutions for over 100 years, so we know what goes wrong in the workplace and why.

Our particular strength is in bringing together different disciplines and teams to create practical, innovative and useful solutions. These include:

  • expert advice and consultancy
  • targeted research
  • testing and modelling
  • tools for your organisation
  • specialised training.

We take an evidence-based approach when evaluating workplace problems, drawing on our wealth of scientific research and knowledge.

We have an international reputation for high-quality research and we collaborate worldwide through a network of partnerships.
