Annual Science Review
HSE’s Annual Science Review 2022 focuses on ways our science and evidence is being used to protect people and places, helping everyone lead safer and healthier lives.
This is the second of our Annual Science Reviews which describes work that has been completed by HSE’s scientists and engineers during a continuing global pandemic. Our focus has been on providing data on the real-world consequences of the pandemic to help deliver practical solutions which ensured that HSE’s response to the pandemic was informed by the best available evidence. In addition, it has also provided information that could help our organisation build back better in those areas where evidence was needed to help us be an enabling regulator, and secure justice against those who breach the law.
Our review provides case studies from the range of science and engineering work we have delivered helping to maintain Great Britain’s record as one of the safest countries to work in.
