Health And Safety Policy
The law requires all employers of more than five people must have a written health and safety statement setting out their general health and safety policy, and the organisation and arrangements for carrying out this policy.
The employer must also bring the health and safety statement and revisions of it to the attention of their employees.
To comply with the law employers should carry out a full and proper assessment of their health and safety obligations and how they will fulfil them.
The specific policy of the employer’s business undertaking and the workplaces where their employees work should be set out.
This will require detailed and technical assessments of risk in respect of all the operations carried out in the workplace.
Health and safety policies are included in the document templates available in the Lawrite Documents package for employers, which is available by annual subscription from the Lawrite Lawshop.
