LVR-Safety-Policy-Development

 

Central to every organisation should be a Health and Safety Policy Document , which sets out how health and safety is managed within the business. In fact, for businesses employing 5 or more people there is a legal requirement to create a written health and safety policy document and bring it to the attention of all employees, under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 .

A further piece of legislation known as the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 requires that such organisations must have in writing appropriate arrangements for planning, organisation, control, monitoring and review of preventative and protective measures.

One approach to this could be to employ a consultancy to create a complex safety management system that no one understands and is too obstructive to workflow, or alternatively to purchase a ready made set of documents from the Internet. But we think that neither of these are good solutions, or meet the intended spirit of the legislation.

A far better approach is use our expertise in helping you develop a straightforward policy document and guide you in putting into to place a practical approach to dealing with health and safety, enhancing your business rather than it getting in the way. Tackling the legal requirements doesn't need to involve a large drain on the business's resources, and once a basic framework is in place you will start to see the benefits it can bring.

Contact LVR to see how we help you develop an efficient and effective approach to safety that is relevant to your business and the way it functions.
