Health & Safety Policy in your Buisness

Health & Safety Policy for your Business.

Health & safety Policy

 Describing how you will manage health & safety in your business will let your staff and others know about your commitment to health and safety. This will be your health and safety policy. It should clearly say who does what, when and how.
 If you have fewer than five employees you don’t have to write down your health & safety policy.
 The policy does not need to be complicated or time-consuming. It comes in three sections:

 1. General Statement – This is meant to show your commitment to providing your workforce with a safe and healthy place of work
 2. Organisation – This section explains the make-up of the company and details the responsibility towards health and safety, of everybody in the company from the Owner/MD down to the most junior worker. Nobody should be able to say “I didn’t know I was responsible for that”.
 3. Arrangements – This section is the real crux of the policy and spells out how you, as an organisation, expect your staff to meet standards and what controls or procedures to follow. For example: Your policy on Drink and Drugs is… What is your policy regarding noise at work, hazardous substances or driving company vehicles? Again nobody who works for you should be able to say “I didn’t know that I was supposed to do that”

 But remember: A Health & Safety policy will only be effective if you and your staff follow it and review it regularly
