Abstract The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a safety and health project aimed at small enterprises in a region of England. A series of process and outcome tools were developed to measure how the project was delivered, the extent to which it had reached those intended to benefit from its services and which elements were more successful. The report documents the outcomes of the four main components of the project: marketing and promotional activities; telephone help and website providing support and guidance; occupational health advice, delivered to individual workers and/or their employers; occupational safety and health support and advice, delivered on site to SMEs and their employees. The report concludes with a discussion of the implications of the research, giving particular attention to general lessons about the delivery of occupational safety and health support.
