HEALTH & SAFETY POLICY PROCEDURES WRITING
If you employ more than 5 members of staff you must have a written health and safety policy statement with roles and responsibilities clearly identified.
It’s vital that your written policy is tailored to meet the unique requirements of your business.
Your written health and safety policy should consist of three parts:
- 1. A general statement of intent – This should outline in broad terms the businesses overall commitment in relation to the management of health and safety, including reference to the responsibilities of both management and the workforce.
- 2. Organisation (people and their duties) – This outlines the chain of command in terms of health and safety management e.g. who is responsible for whom and for what, what is the accountability protocol to ensure delegated responsibilities are undertaken and how is policy implementation monitored.
- 3. Arrangements (systems and procedures) – This deals with the practical arrangements by which the policy will be effectively implemented.
