A health and safety policy sets out your general approach and commitment, together with the arrangements you have put in place for managing health and safety in your business. It is a unique document that says who does what, when and how.
A documented health and safety policy is a legal requirement if you employ five or more people. If you have fewer than five employees you do not have to write anything down, though it is considered useful to do so.
Our advisors are well versed in producing safety documentation and would be more than happy to work with your staff to ensure you have comprehensive systems that are formally documented in a manner that satisfies the law and provides value to your business.
