Not only is it a legal requirement, by the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, to have a Health and Safety Policy in place, it also demonstrates a business’s commitment to managing workplace health and safety. The Policy is also a reflection of what the business does and what it wants to achieve in the field of health and safety.
Your Health and Safety Policy will be constructed in three distinct sections:
- Statement of Intent highlighting your Company's commitment to health and safety management in the workplace;
- Individual health and safety responsibilities for you and your staff;
- Company arrangements relevant to your Company work activities and safety systems.
We can also prepare other safety-related documentation that your company requires. Whether it is to document workplace procedures and safe systems of work, or detailed policies that you require your staff and others to be aware of.
