A new website detailing the history of Occupational Safety & Health was launched on April 28th to coincide with the World Day for Safety and Health at Work, which is also Workers’ Memorial Day.
The website can be found at and sets out developments from the 1802 Factory Act to regulation changes made by the HSE last year.

The site provides a wealth of information tracking the development of occupational safety and health.
The website includes a brief history of health and safety law, written by David Eves CB, the HSE’s former deputy director general and chief inspector (and past Vice President of SGUK); a timeline; details of government reviews, legislation, standards, inspectorates and notable people/organisations; lectures; a reading list; training; and related museums. Some full texts, including some that are more than 100 years old, can be accessed via the website.

The website has been developed thanks to Sheila Pantry, of Sheila Pantry Associates Ltd, a member of RoSPA’s National Occupational Safety & Health Committee who has led the ‘History of OSH’ project.
