HSE's Science and Evidence Strategy 2016-2022
HSE's science and evidence strategy is predicated on the use and
development of practical, solution-oriented science. In our
strategy we set out our 'science and evidence cycle': anticipating
challenges to health and safety; providing robust evidence for
effective risk control; underpinning regulatory policy and
operational decisions; protecting workers and safeguarding the
public by developing interventions; and catalysing engagement
within the health and safety system and improving performance.
