Testing, Monitoring and Analysis Services

Service Provision during the Coronavirus/COVID-19 Pandemic

As a Government body, HSE employees are following current public health advice to work from home.

Consequently, we have put a temporary halt on all routine testing.

We are regularly reviewing the situation and will resume normal services as soon as it's safe to do so.

In the meantime, we will store any samples that we have already received that are in a condition suitable for storage and assess the viability of testing them when normal service resumes.

Please do not send any further samples to us, as we are now unable to accept them.

If you have any questions, the preferred method of contact is currently by e-mail:

We will try and respond to you, or pass you to one of our specialists, as soon as we can.

Many thanks for your understanding at this difficult time and take care.



HSE Testing and Monitoring gives you access to the testing services you need to mitigate risk, protect employees and improve workplace health and safety.

Leading the field in measurement science, our extensive analytical services and assays help you to qualify and quantify exposure to hazardous substances in your workplace. In addition to these laboratory services we also offer dedicated test facilities to help you detect and address health and safety hazards; safely develop or improve your products, or assess the potential impact of real-world incidents.

We can test to British and International standards, devise bespoke tests to your specifications, and work flexibly to your testing schedules.

You'll benefit from the advice and support of our experts, many of whom are recognised as authorities in their field. They will interpret your test results into meaningful data, enabling you to recognise and act on the hazards in your situation. This ensures that our service to you delivers value for money and is relevant to today's occupational health and safety challenges.
