Process and Manufacturing

In 2012/13, manufacturing accounted for around 10% of the British workforce. Man in factoryBut it also accounted for almost one in five fatalities and reported injuries among employees.

Leading players in the industry are partnering with us at HSL, both in the UK and globally, to take active steps in improving safety and protecting workers' long-term health and wellbeing. And in doing so, we help them achieve their business goals.

Why choose HSL?

  • Our core business is to help employers to assess hazards in the workplace, apply effective controls, and manage risks to health and safety.
  • The perspective that we gain through supporting the Health and Safety Executive, in investigating over 200 incidents a year, means that we have a unique understanding of why accidents happen in the manufacturing sector, and how they can be prevented.
  • You benefit from the hands-on experience of our multi-disciplinary teams, who can respond quickly, and help find the best solution for you.
  • We are independent, and our staff are world-leaders in their fields, with expertise in key subject areas relevant to the manufacturing industry, such as slips and trips, musculoskeletal disorders, and fatigue in shift-workers. By working with us, you are able to tap into the latest thinking on key industry topics.

How can we help?

As a world-class health and safety facility, we will work with you to find solutions to the issues you face. We offer bespoke research and expert advice on the management of risks, as well as testing equipment and systems to ensure they are fit-for-purpose. Our approach is evidence-based. It is also people-centred, as over 80% of accidents are caused by human factors, at least in part.

Examples of how we've helped companies in manufacturing include:

  • Carrying out a safety culture evaluation for the Ford Motor Company.
  • Providing occupational hygiene consultancy for a wind turbine blade manufacturer.
  • Making whole-body vibration and noise assessments for Coca Cola.
