The Health and Safety Executive's (HSE) primary purpose is "the prevention of death, injury and ill-health to those at work and those affected by work activities".
As Great Britain's independent regulator, we support businesses with free guidance and advice, but also offer paid-for services such as training, consultancy and bespoke research to those who want to be exemplars in health and safety.
Our unrivalled combination of cutting edge science, over 40 years of hands-on experience and world class expertise help to make Great Britain one of the safest and best places in the world to work and do business.
Health and Safety Consulting
The Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) is one of the world's leading providers of workplace health and safety research, training and consultancy. We employ over 350 scientific, medical and technical specialists.
We are part of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Carrying out investigations for HSE gives us unique insight into the causes of workplace accidents and ill-health.
We know that health and safety can't be considered in isolation. Central to any business are people and their interaction with plant (the site, equipment, tools), process (how you use the plant), product (what you produce) and place (the working environment you are in).
We have been developing health and safety solutions for over 100 years, so we know what goes wrong in the workplace and why.
Our particular strength is in bringing together different disciplines and teams to create practical, innovative and useful solutions. These include:
We take an evidence-based approach when evaluating workplace problems, drawing on our wealth of scientific research and knowledge.
We have an international reputation for high-quality research and we collaborate worldwide through a network of partnerships.
Regulatory Affairs Services
As the regulator for Health and Safety in the UK we are uniquely placed to share our years of experience and expertise in making the UK one of the safest places to work in the world. Our policies and regulations have ensured the UK has been able to carry out major projects with great success. For example the development of the Olympic Park for the 2012 Olympic Games in London was carried out on time, to cost, and with 0 fatalities.
Laboratory and Facility Management Services
HSE Training and Conferences is unlike any other training provider. Our courses are delivered by scientists and health and safety experts who work in research and investigations every day, for the benefit of industry and government. Our training is built around current real-world expertise and is fully aligned with the requirements of the regulator.
We run courses running across the UK, including London and at HSE's purpose-built laboratory in Buxton, Derbyshire.
We can also offer a bespoke solution for companies, arranged either in-house or at our laboratory facilities. Some of our most popular courses include:
