Health & Safety Documentation for Business
Companies with five or more employees are required by law to have a written Health and Safety policy. This policy statement will document how your company manages health and safety. It is a unique document that shows what tasks are performed; how they are carried out; if it is safe to do so and how it can be made safer.
Apart from the legal requirements that your policy document fulfils, it demonstrates your commitment to providing a safe place to carry out business. This commitment shows your staff that you care about their welfare and will play a major part in reducing work related illness and injury.
