    Science driving health and safety innovation

    Science and engineering hold the vital key to making Britain’s workplaces healthier and safer for future generations of employees, a new report makes clear.

    According to the Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) Annual Science Review more than 800 specialists – from microbiologists and psychologists to explosive experts – are working on novel ways to improve workplace health and safety.

    They are based at the HSE’s Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) in Derbyshire and the organisation’s HQ in Bootle.

    The review also highlights the way the UK is leading the way when it comes to predicting and combating future challenges.

    ‘Lessons can be learnt’

    Professor Andrew Curran, the HSE’s chief scientific adviser and director of research, says the experts’ work is aimed at shedding light on the root causes of accidents at work or other incidents that have resulted in people losing their lives or being seriously injured.

    Drawing lessons from those incidents, he says, can help improve current health and safety systems.

    The UK’s workers of tomorrow, meanwhile, Professor Curran adds, can be helped by developing a better understanding of the risks that future technological, social and economic changes may throw up.
