Reducing Risks, Protecting People (R2P2) is the document that explains the basis for the Health and Safety Executive's (HSE's) decision-making processes. As such, it underpins all HSE regulatory activity. The research summarised here sought to establish the reach of the document amongst the HSE's stakeholder groups and to determine the extent to which R2P2 makes transparent HSE activities and lays the decision-making process open to scrutiny.
A multi-stage research methodology was adopted, involving a telephone screening survey to establish reach, and a series of more in-depth interviews and focus groups to gather qualitative data about the document and its impact.
