I have been asked to reply.

HSE has a budget of £11 million for applied research in 2011-12 and the major part is devoted to occupational health. Further details can be found on the HSE website at:

HSE's occupational research programme is informed by contacts with other funding bodies active in this area to identify synergies and potential gaps in knowledge.
