Why is it important to have a Health and Safety Policy?
It is a legal requirement that once a business has 5 employees or more (including Directors and/or Partners) it must have a written Health & Safety Policy that is signed and dated by the most senior person in the business.
Having a good Health & Safety policy in place is one of the most important documents that any company needs to have as it details what your company will do to ensure the safety of it’s employees while conducted work related activities.
Areas covered in the policy include:
- Purpose and Scope
- Health & Safety policy
- Arrangements for health and safety
