It is a legal requirement for all organisations with five or more employees, to have a written Health and Safety Policy and documented Risk Assessments.
Many documents, policies and forms can be downloaded from the internet, but they will often not be suitable for your business and your workforce. A template document will be generic and either not cover all of the activities that your staff undertake, or include activities that they are not involved with at all, leaving the management at risk.
If an accident or incident occurs in the workplace then one of the first parts of any investigation is to review the documents (including policies and procedures) and any training records to understand the training that each member of staff receives. Therefore if your documents do not clearly state what your staff should do and how they are expected to behave, then the management are at risk of not providing sufficient information and training to their employees. We can assist with any of the following:
Health and Safety Policy
Training Plans and Matrix
Safe Systems to Work
Permits to Work
...and many more.
