If you have five or more employees, you must have a written health and safety policy in place. Describing how you’ll manage health and safety in your business will also let your employees and others know about your commitment to health and safety. Your policy should clearly set out who does what, when and how. It doesn’t need to be complicated or time-consuming but be aware that a health and safety policy will only be effective if you and your staff follow it and you review it regularly. Our information and documentation in this section will assist you with producing a suitable health and safety policy for your business.
