Data derived from HSL services

HSL provides a number of services to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and other commercial customers.  As a result of these services, HSL generates and holds a large amount of data, some of which may be licensed for re-use.

National Population Database

Material - One such example is the National Population Database (NPD), which is a geographical information system (GIS) tool developed by HSL to inform HSE's risk assessment work within the United Kingdom.

Further information on the NPD Tool can be found in a separate case study.

HSL has become a licensed reseller of Ordnance Survey mapping data, upon which the NPD Tool is built, and this now allows us to licence NPD data to other organisations for re-use.

Prices - Licence fees are based upon the customer's data requirements (in terms of the number of population layers required and the geographical area(s) of interest) in addition to the customer's own licence status for Ordnance Survey mapping products.  Prices include all data collation and supply fees as well as the relevant licence fees.

Requesting a licence - For further information or a quote please contact the HSL GIS team directly: or the HSL Licensing team:
