Prior to April 2015 the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) operated as an in-house agency of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). It received funding of £28.8 million in 2012/13, £28.2 million in 2013/14 and £26.2 million in 2014/15.

In April 2015 HSL was integrated as a major part of HSE’s Science Division. To deliver its strategic objectives, HSE allocates its resources across its divisions. The Science Division (SD) received £32.1 million in 2015/16. In 2016/17 it received £16.0 million which excludes the cost of IT and estates. These were previously managed by SD but are now managed centrally by HSE.
