Health and Safety Policy


Health and Safety Policy

It is a legal requirement for employers with more than five employees to have a written Health and Safety Policy. This in turn facilitates formal arrangements to effectively manage workplace safety and health risks. The document will also show:

  • The organisation takes its health and safety responsibilities seriously.
  • There is a formal means of communicating health and safety policies and procedures to employees.
  • Effective arrangements are in place which can be shared with third parties such as contractors, visitors, customers and business partners. This can also lead to a commercial benefit.

The fundamental structure of the policy document is shown below:
