Introduction from HSE’s Chief Scientific Adviser
I am reviewing the quality of the Health and Safety Laboratory’s science and technical outputs. This will take four years to complete.
These reviews are designed to provide an independent, though time-limited, view of the work of HSL. They are to give assurance to me – and through me, to the HSE Board and Government Chief Scientific Adviser – that the quality of HSL’s work stands scientific scrutiny from its peers. On this occasion, the review team consisted of Prof Sir Anthony Newman-Taylor, Prof Paul Blanc, Dr Trevor Ogden and me.
