Companies have a responsibility and duties under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 and should ensure, so far as reasonably practicable the health, safety and welfare of all staff members, clients, visitors and other persons who may be affected by its activities. There is strategic and moral importance of health and safety as part of business performance and a responsibility to develop a positive health and safety culture throughout the organisation.
This customisable Health and Safety Policy has been prepared in accordance with the requirement of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974. It defines how the health and safety risks associated with business, premises and activities will be managed. It will be signed and delivered by the Registered Manager.
This policy will assist you to implement a systematic and pro-active approach to managing health and safety risks by making sure that foreseeable risks are identified, mitigated and communicated effectively to those who may be affected. With a view to ensuring continuous improvement, performance can be benchmarked and evidenced so that staff, clients and other persons who may be affected can be assured of its internal processes.
This policy is to be used in conjunction with The Incident Management Policy.
