Baldwins opening mine safety site. British Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin (left, 1867-1947) at the official 1928 opening of the new Safety in Mines Research Board (SMRB) laboratories at Portobello Street, Sheffield, UK. The SMRB was a forerunner of what is today the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL). Health and safety research in the UK started with investigations in the early 20th century into safety in mines, expanding to cover other areas of workplace safety. Baldwin's wife Lucy Baldwin (1869-1945) is at right. The opening took place on 11 October 1928, during Baldwin's second term as Prime Minister (1924-1929).
