Health and Safety Management

Written Health and Safety policies and procedures are a legal requirement for any company which employs 5 or more members of staff. The health and safety policy should consist of three key sections:

  • Statement of Intent (company goals, objectives and targets for health and safety)
  • Organisational Responsibilities (management and employee responsibilities).
  • Arrangements for Implementation (how the company will achieve their aims, goals and objectives). This is company specific and should include health and safety issues onsite.

According to The Health & Safety at Work etc. Act (1974), health and safety policies must be regularly reviewed and revised, and changes must be brought to the attention of all employees.
