Written Health and Safety policies and procedures are a legal requirement for any company which employs 5 or more members of staff. The health and safety policy should consist of three key sections:
- Statement of Intent (company goals, objectives and targets for health and safety)
- Organisational Responsibilities (management and employee responsibilities).
- Arrangements for Implementation (how the company will achieve their aims, goals and objectives).
According to The Health & Safety at Work etc. Act (1974), health and safety policies must be regularly reviewed and revised, and changes must be brought to the attention of all employees.
Your health and safety policy should be a true reflection of your company’s health and safety systems and should have the ability of being utilised as a live working document.
