About HSE

The UK Health and Safety Executive’s scientific laboratory is a founder member of PEROSH.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) regulates workplace health and safety in Great Britain through a risk-based, goal-setting regulatory framework that has helped make Britain one of the safest places in the world to work. HSE’s scientists and analysts provide high-quality evidence that informs and underpins HSE’s regulatory regime and are vital for ensuring effective and proportionate risk management that protects workers and safeguards the public while enabling productivity, innovation and growth.

For case studies showing how our delivery of science and analysis is being used to improve health and safety at work, see our Annual Science Reviews.

Our Science and Evidence Delivery Plan 2021-2024 sets out the key objectives for our science and evidence work. This plan supports the HSE strategy 2022-2032 ‘Protecting People and Places’.
