At Safety Forward we create bespoke health and safety policies and procedures for businesses operating throughout the UK. The policy will demonstrate how seriously your organisation takes its health and safety responsibilities.
A well written policy will show how the organisation protects those who could be affected by its activities. If you have five or more employees you must have this written down and communicate it to your employees.
Under Section 2 (3) of the Health and Safety at Work Act the policy should:
- Set out the employers general policy with respect to health and safety
- Describe the organisation and arrangements in place for carrying out the policy;
- Be reviewed as often as appropriate
As a business owner you may find it difficult to communicate your words and document your policy. Effective health and safety policies and procedures need to be up-to-date, relevant and practical.
Let Safety Forward take care of your H&S Policy requirements to ensure you are demonstrating good health & safety management to your employees, customers and visitors.
