Health And Safety Policy Writing Review

It is best practice to have a documented Health and Safety Policy for your company whether you’re a sole trader, SME or large corporation. However, if you have five or more employees it is a legal requirement to have a suitably detailed Health and Safety Policy that should clearly say who does what, when and how.

The HSE states: “The legal requirement to write a policy is included in the Health and Safety at Work etc Act. The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations explain the steps you must take to manage health and safety.”

E

Your Health and Safety Policy is the cornerstone of the health and safety management system at your company. It summarises your understanding and commitment to ensuring the safety of everyone involved in your business.

E

Your Health and Safety Policy needs to be specific for your business and premises considering the processes you operate.

E

Your Health and Safety Policy should clearly demonstrate you and your company commitment to the safety, health and well-being of your employees, contractors, customers and members of the public.

E

Ideally your Health and Safety policy should be reviewed regularly, at least annually, or when there are any significant changes to the business, premises or processes.
