About the Safe at heart library

Welcome to HS2’s Safe at heart library. Here you’ll find lots of resources showing our commitment to making HS2 the UK’s safest ever major project.

Who is the Safe at heart library for?

You may be an existing or potential contractor, working in the wider construction or rail industry, an academic researcher, health and safety specialist or member of an industry body, institution or association. You may simply be interested in finding out more about health, safety and wellbeing at HS2.

High Speed Two (HS2) is an extraordinary project offering extraordinary potential for revitalising and rebalancing economic and social opportunity in the UK.

We are building infrastructure on a scale never seen before.  Many thousands of people will be working on and impacted by HS2.  Keeping all of these people safe, healthy and well is at the heart of everything we do.

Together with our world-class partners, we are determined to set the bar for health, safety and wellbeing higher than ever before.  It is our duty as an industry leader and intrinsic to high performance.

We have committed to go far beyond getting the basics right every day.  We will constantly strive, together, for new, better and different ways of making HS2 the UK’s safest ever project.  We will use our collective power to reset expectations, transform standards and leave an outstanding legacy for the country, our industry and future mega projects.

And that is what our Safe at heart learning library is about: bringing together, showcasing and sharing evidence of the transformational difference we are making to health, safety and wellbeing as we deliver HS2.
