Health & Safety Policies & Procedures

It is a regulatory requirement of the law that all organisations with more than 5 employees have to have a written Health & Safety policy. The policy will need to make sure that it identifies the roles and responsibilities in Health & Safety, as well as the arrangements for making sure that all employees, contractors, visitors are not put at any risk due to you as the employer.
