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 be 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
- expert advice and consultancy
- targeted research
- testing and modelling
- tools for your organisation
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.
