Policies and Procedures

Put simply, a policy is a statement that you are maintaining the required level of health and safety in the workplace; this should include the procedures (tasks, responsibilities, rules etc.) you have in place to achieve this. Typical health and safety policy and procedures should include:

  • The risks present in your workplace: are you aware of the risks? Are you monitoring them and reducing them wherever possible? Are your staff informed and updated on potential hazards and risks in the workplace?
  • How you are managing any¬†hazardous substances, equipment or machinery? Are your staff informed, educated and trained in these areas?
  • The actions required to minimise these risks: are you doing the best you can to ensure all risks are managed and minimized?
  • Whose responsibility it is to ensure these actions are taken? What are your reporting lines and¬† management structure when it comes to health & safety?
  • Who records and monitors incidents and tasks? Do you have clear monitoring systems in place?
  • What happens in case of emergencies? What happens if the worst happens?
