Reporting a health and safety issue
Coronavirus (COVID-19): update

- online using our working safely enquiry form
- by telephone: 0300 790 6787 lines are open Monday to Friday 8:30am to 5pm
If you see something in a workplace that you think is breaking health and safety law and is likely to cause serious harm, you can report it.
Report a problem to us
The quickest way to report a problem (not related to coronavirus workplace safety guidance) is to use our online form and when you submit it you will get an acknowledgement. If you can't use the form, you can phone us on 0300 003 1647 and we will fill in the form with you. Our lines are open Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5pm (on Wednesdays we are open from 10am to 5pm).
Before you get in touch
It may be possible to put some health and safety problems right without contacting us.
You could speak to:
- the person in charge of the work
- your employer
- your union or employee representative
HSE doesn’t cover all health and safety matters
Before getting in touch, you should check we're the right people to contact as there are a number of organisations that deal with health and safety.
