    Abstract

    The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) currently uses well-established sources of data on workplace injury and ill health to inform its policies and programmes. The primary sources of data are RIDDOR and the Labour Force Survey (LFS). However, the HSE is aware of other databases, and studies, surveys and reviews which are relevant to the contemporary landscape of health and safety research, policy and management. The project identifies, describes, evaluates and catalogues data sources that could inform these areas and which are either currently unknown to or not fully exploited by the HSE. The bibliography presented covers 53 data sources of substance. Ten sources were categorised as ‘of importance’ and evaluated and described in detail. Two sources were believed to be of particular importance to the HSE: the Whitehall II Study and the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing. The former contains more information of relevance. This report and the work it describes were funded by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Its contents, including any opinions and/or conclusions expressed, are those of the authors alone and do not necessarily reflect HSE policy.
