How can health and safety systems be improved by effectively linking, utilising and
analysing new and current data sets on accident and incident investigation activities?

Background

To further develop understanding of the current and future world of work to ensure that our regulatory approach remains suitable and sufficient, including where our regulatory interests extend beyond preventing harm to workers, e.g. covering assessment of potential adverse impacts of chemicals on the general public, consumers and the environment. To equip ourselves with new insights into the reasons why particular failures in health and safety occur. To develop the existing system of ongoing data collection, analysis, interpretation and result dissemination so that it continues to support HSE’s current priorities and prevention strategies and is flexible enough to adapt to change. To identify health and safety hazards and risks arising from change in the GB workforce and their work.
