Health & Safety Laboratory
HSE’s Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) is one of the world’s leading providers of health and safety solutions to industry, government and professional bodies.
HSL has a long history of assessing workplace dermal hazards through measuring external (gloves and suit analysis, surface wipe samples, visualisation techniques, portable x-ray diffraction) and internal (biological monitoring) exposures. We provide experimental capabilities (including volunteer studies and in vitro techniques) as well as workplace reviews and experience in modelling (e.g. dART) and human exposure assessments.
We offer health and safety research, expert advice and consultancy, specialist training and products.
