Health and safety policy statement

Health and safety policy statement

If you employ five or more staff, you’re required to have a written statement describing how you manage health and safety. If you find this a difficult task, our policy can help get you started.

Policy statement

If you employ five or more members of staff (including those working part-time), the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 (HSWA) requires you to have a written statement which describes how you manage health and safety. For many companies this is a daunting task, not only in terms of layout but knowing what to include. If you need some help, then use our Health and Safety Policy Statement. It contains all the key elements that the HSE, insurers and others would expect to see.

What does it include?

It covers all the usual areas such as a commitment to undertake risk assessments, maintaining a safe place of work, training employees etc. but it also includes small sections for you to personalise. Including company-specific information will make your policy statement stand out from the usual bland and impersonal documents. It will show that you wrote it yourself and understand your responsibilities.
