Write a health and safety policy for your business



A health and safety policy is a description of how you will manage health and safety in your business. This will let your staff and others know about your commitment to health and safety. It should clearly say who does what, when and how.

If you have five or more employees, you must have a written policy.

A policy will only be effective if you and your staff follow it and review it regularly.

This guide outlines what should be in your health and safety policy, section by section. It also provides advice for implementing your health and safety policy
