Drafting Health and Safety policies

hsa-s-largeA written Health and Safety Policy is a legal requirement if a company employs 5 or more employees. The elements of a Health and Safety Policy are:

The General Statement:

This is the declaration of the employer's intent to provide and maintain, so far as is reasonably practicable, a safe and healthy working environment and to enlist the support of employees towards achieving these ends. The statement should be signed by the employer / chief executive, to demonstrate commitment to managing health and safety.

The Organisation:

To be fully effective, the policy should detail health and safety responsibilities within the entire organisation. Where appropriate key individuals or their job titles should be named, and responsibilities defined within a job description.

The Arrangements:

This part of the policy will need to cover the systems and procedures in place for ensuring employees health and safety in all areas of the organisation.
