Health & Safety Policies
The foundation to a safety management system that should detail how the company complies with the legislative requirements placed upon them.
Policies detail the 'Who, What and Why' of a companies approach to health & safety. They must compliment other company policies so as not to create confusion and uncertainty in the message. This is sometimes the reasoning behind HR departments being made responsible for Health & Safety.This approach is OK for low risk undertakings but anything more requires the specialist knowledge of a health & safety professional.
Our approach is to work closely with all relevant stakeholders to ensure policies are not only suitable and sufficient for your needs but integrate with current systems. So whether you need a single policy or a complete suite we can provide you with a solution.
