Health and safety policies are a legal requirement for any company which employs 5 or more members of staff. The health and safety policy should consist of three key sections:
The Statement of Intent (Company goals, objectives and targets for health and safety)
Organisational Responsibilities (Management and employee responsibilities).
Arrangements for Implementation (How the company will achieve their aims). This is company specific and should include health and safety issues onsite.
According to The Health & Safety at Work Act (1974), health and safety policies must be regularly reviewed and revised, and changes must be brought to the attention of all employees.
