Employers who employ five or more people are legally required to have a written health and safety policy and a record of health and safety arrangements.

On the other hand, employers who employ less than five people are not legally required to have a written health and safety policy. However, it is always recommendable and good practice to have one in place. 

This Policy clearly sets out how an employer manages health and safety in the workplace by defining who does what, when and how. 

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 is the primary piece of legislation covering work-related health and safety in the United Kingdom. It sets out an employer’s responsibilities for health and safety at work. Employers have a 'duty of care' to look after, as far as possible, the health and safety and welfare of employees while they are at work; employers are not only responsible for the health and safety of their employees but they are also responsible for any visitors to their premises such as customers, suppliers and the general public.

Section 2 (3) of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 provides that a written statement must:

  • state general policy on health and safety; 
  • describe arrangements for carrying out policy;
  • be brought to the notice of all employees;
  • be revised whenever appropriate, and every revision must be brought to employees’ attention.

We have drafted this Policy to cover all regulations and legislation relating to health and safety at work. This Policy is comprehensive and up to date.
