    Review looks at how science reduces work accidents

    A new book looks at how science is driving health and safety innovations at work.

    Hundreds of scientists across the country have been working on ways to predict the health and safety at work challenges of the future.

    Explosive research

    The 850 science experts include psychologists, microbiologists and explosive specialists.

    The Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) Annual Science Review showcases a number of examples of the year’s research and its positive impact.

    Chief Scientific Adviser and Director of Research, Professor Andrew Curran, says that the HSE is a strongly scientific and evidence based organisation.

    Research hopes to reduce death rates

    In 2014/15, 142 people lost their lives at work. The HSE’s focus is to understand the root cause of these incidents, Prof Curran says.

    The forensic approach can help to secure justice as HSE experts testify in court every week.

    By learning from the past, the scientists hope to be able to support the present by transferring knowledge to others in the health and safety system, and to protect the future by better understanding the risks and challenges that social, economic and technical changes could bring.
