Scientists and researchers

Science plays a big part in how HSE keeps people safe and well at work.

Our scientists do some fascinating work – they are involved in world-leading research into occupational risks, support national policy development and apply their unique expertise and forensic skills to incident investigations. Whether you are a toxicologist, psychologist, microbiologist, chemist, economist, statistician, physician, occupational hygienist or epidemiologist, your knowledge and skills can make a real difference in HSE.

Our people are also part of the Government science and statistical communities, which creates opportunities to make an important contribution to national life.

And because science and evidence is integral to our work, your training is carefully tailored to you and your role, helping develop the skills to progress your career.
