Health & Safety policy development- It is a legal requirement that companies that employ 5 or more employees must have a written health and safety policy. Unlike other companies we develop and tailor the policy and procedures to the company rather than providing an off the shelf document which has no bearing on a company’s activities. We believe that this assists the company in the implementation of the policy and develops a safer working environment and culture by utilising a common sense approach to the health and safety regulations. We believe that the document require time to develop with the company and requires auditing and measuring on a regular basis to ensure compliance within the company and to make necessary changes where the company systems require changing and development.
A typical policy document requires the following;
• Policy Statement
• Organisation
• Procedures
The statement shall show how the company will control health and safety through its operations. The organisational structure will set out who is responsible for the functions within the company. The procedures will show how the company will control areas of risk within its activities as required under current regulations.
