The Health and Safety at Work Etc Act 1974 states an absolute duty that all employers who have five or more employees must produce a written health and safety policy.
That policy must also be signed by the senior executive and dated. Even where a documented health and safety in not legally required, a lot of smaller organisations are increasingly being asked by existing clients or prospective clients to produce a statement of intent for health and safety, as they require all partners in their business to demonstrate that they operate a safety-conscious organisation.
A health and safety company policy is a unique document for your organisation that says who does what, when and how. It is a health and safety document that our health and safety consultants can help you prepare that sets out your organisation’s general approach, objectives and the arrangements you have put in place for managing health and safety. If you employ more than five employees your policy must be documented.
