Our mission and priorities

Protecting people and places

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is Britain’s national regulator for workplace health and safety. We are dedicated to protecting people and places, and helping everyone lead safer and healthier lives.

Our role goes beyond worker protection to include public assurance. We work to ensure people feel safe where they live, where they work and, in their environment.


Regardless of your role, being part of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) gives you a real opportunity to help Great Britain work well. We protect lives and livelihoods and also help employers innovate, be productive and grow. Our people do some of the most important work in the Civil Service, supporting the government.

As the national occupational health and safety regulator, we offer a range of rewarding career opportunities. We employ scientists, engineers, health experts, and IT and digital professionals as well as inspectors and many other roles. We invest in our people because together we can help more people come home safe and well from their jobs.

HSE is committed to providing a supportive and inclusive working environment and we particularly welcome female/BAME/disabled/LGBT+ applicants, as they are currently underrepresented within HSE.

Equality and diversity

We aim to have a workforce which reflects the society we serve and to create an inclusive culture that values and respects diversity.

Equality objectives

We will continue to build our diversity with a specific focus on improving Racial Inclusion and Representation across all grades in HSE to better reflect the public we serve.

We will continue to build and sustain a supportive and inclusive culture, where diversity of thought and experience is recognised, encouraged and celebrated.

We have a zero tolerance approach for bullying, harassment and discrimination (BHD). We will sustain and build on our great work in reducing bullying, harassment and discrimination. We will focus on ensuring that everyone feels comfortable and confident speaking up on a range of issues – from BHD, to raising concerns about colleagues' wellbeing, security or concerns about behaviour.

Hybrid working will require a culture shift, the establishment of new ways of working and associated policies and practices to maximise the significant benefits to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion for individuals and HSE. We will provide a supportive system and framework for employees and line managers, reviewing the impact of the new Hybrid Working Policy to ensure that it is having the intended impact.
