Developing a Health and Safety policy can be a daunting task.
UK Health and Safety Law requires employers to protect employees, contractors, and visitors. Your safety and health policy describes how you will do that. It spells out how you will manage health and safety in your business.
At a minimum your health and safety policy must address:
- Emergency procedures;
- First aid; and
- Accident and ill health reporting.
Depending on the type of work you do, your policy may also need to address:
- Electrical safety;
- Fire safety
- Gas safety;
- Harmful substances;
- Machinery, plant, equipment;
- Manual handling;
- Personal protective equipment;
- Slips and trips;
- Stress; or
- Other health and safety concerns.
