Health and Safety Policy Communication

Developing a Safety Statement is the first step as this defines the Organisations policy to Health and Safety. The next step is to communicate this policy at all levels of the organisation to embed Health and Safety in the culture of the organisation. Don’t let your Health and Safety Statement gather dust, use it as a plan and implement it’s actions.

Under the current Health and Safety legislation, Employers have a responsibility to provide clear information to employees on workplace hazards and risks identified, on protective and preventative measures taken.
