Health and safety documentation

We can help you with any health and safety documentation you require to support your H&S management system. For instance the design and production of a health and safety policy or any other policies you require. The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 section 2(3) requires all organizations who employ five people or more to have a written health and safety policy. This policy should contain three parts:

  • General statement of intent;
  • Organisation, which states who is responsible for what;
  • Arrangements, the systems and procedures required to ensure the H&S management system functions correctly; and
  • It should also be revised on a regular basis and be communicated to employees.

We take a pragmatic approach to the preparation of health and safety policies and ensure they are tailored to an organizations specific requirements and are in easy to understand language. This same common sense approach is applied to the development of other documentation to ensure it is suitable, practical and easy to use. For instance:

  • Health and safety management systems;
  • Risk assessments; Method statements;
  • Permit to work systems; Training and competency records;
  • Accident reporting and recording; Fire safety;
  • COSHH records and assessments.
