Health and Safety Policy Contents:

The policy outlines what risks are faced by the business, as part of their day-to-day activities and also what arrangements are in place to control these, as well as demonstrating who does what, in the business.

The main elements are usually:

  • The statement of general policy on health and safety at work sets out your commitment to managing Health and Safety effectively, and what you want to achieve
  • The responsibility section sets out who is responsible for specific actions
  • The arrangements section contains the detail of what you are going to do in practice to achieve the aims set out in your statement of Health and Safety policy

 

Your Health and  Safety policies provide clear communication, promote a cultural uptake for employee safety and enhance employee engagement.

If you have an effective safety management system then a Health and Safety policy is a key part of the ‘plan’ stage.
