Reporting a health and safety issue
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
You may also find it useful to check what your employer should be doing to keep their workplace safe and healthy. You can do this by topic or industry.
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.
