The paper presented the experiences of Central Institute for Labour Protection – National Research Institute in the area of starting cooperation with companies, based on building networking structures in Poland. For the purpose of allowing the implementation and dissemination of technical and organizational solutions serving the improvement of work conditions in companies in Poland a computer application has been created. The application, according to the authors’ intentions, will be a rich database of solutions and good practices available for broad application. The foundation justifying the creation of such application was a survey of the activity and needs of companies in terms of cooperation of science and industry in the area of safety and hygiene of work conducted in 2014. Both the results of this survey and the philosophy of operation, as well as an initial version of the application have been presented in the paper. Moreover, proposed methods of encouraging companies to start cooperation in the area of work safety and hygiene have been presented.
