Investigation of materials failures at HSE's Science Division, Buxton
HSE's Science Division (SD), based at laboratories in Buxton Derbyshire,
carries out research for both HSE and commercial customers across the broad
range of health and safety related issues, including: chemistry and
biological monitoring, occupational health monitoring and control,
bio-hazards, epidemiology and predictive modelling, ergonomics and human
reliability, psychology, electrical and control systems, explosives and
hazardous materials, fire and thermofluids, material science, mechanical
engineering, fluid dynamics, risk assessment, data science.
In addition to research activities, SD carry out around 150 investigations
into industrial incidents each year, many of them resulting in fatal
injuries. A large number of these involve mechanical engineering and/or
materials failures. Case studies are presented illustrating a number of
these together with some examples of some of the experimental work carried
out at the laboratory in support of investigation work.
