Safety Statement


What is a Safety Statement?
A Safety Statement is the most basic legal requirement of all employers. The company Safety Statement is a written document that describes how Health and Safety within your company is managed.

The Safety Statement must contain:

  • A signed Safety Policy
  • Roles and Responsibilities
  • Company Policies and Procedures
  • Emergency Procedures
  • Company Specific Risk Assessments

 

Why do you need a Safety Statement?
To keep in line with current legislative requirements, namely Section 20 of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005, it is the legal duty of every employer to have a Safety Statement.  The Safety Statement should then become a live document to be used and integrated into the running of the business. All employees must have access to the Safety Statement and it must be adapted to changing legislation or changes within the organisation.

How can we help?
Our approach to compiling a Safety Statement is professional, comprehensive and company specific. In order to gain the required insight into your company and complete specific risk assessments we need to visit your place of work and meet the people involved. This approach ensures that we can advise you where there are legal deficiencies within the workplace and systems. This results in specific recommendations in order to ensure that your company remains compliant with the ever changing legislation and codes of practice.
