Healthcare - Improving Safety

At HSL, we bring together the widest skill set of health and safety experts in the UK. Our team of physicians and world-leading scientists work with a range of organisations to help reduce risks to employees, while improving patient safety.

Our clients include regulatory bodies, the Department of Health, the National Patient Safety Agency, the National Innovation Centre, Strategic Health Authorities and NHS Trusts.

Why choose HSL?

  • Our understanding of issues faced by healthcare organisations comes both from working closely with Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and employing in-house physicians and nurses.
  • We bring new insight and expertise to health and safety issues in the healthcare sector, through our understanding of other very hazardous industries.
  • Our outstanding consultancy services provide a unique insight into the human factors, such as safety culture and worker behaviour, which can affect health and safety in the healthcare sector.

How can we help?

We offer problem-solving, bespoke research, and expert advice on the management of health and safety risks in the workplace.

Examples of how we've helped healthcare organisations include:

  • Improving the safety of the physical environment - providing advice on the selection of appropriate flooring and footwear, to reduce falls.
  • Reviewing physical, chemical and biological risks to patients and workers, and providing ergonomic consultancy on service/ ward redesign.
  • Carrying out infection control - devising decontamination and cleaning strategies, and developing and implementing competence frameworks to improve team performance.
