This month Simply Docs are continuing the improvements to our health and safety policy documents with the addition of a new collection of Health and Safety Statement, Health and Safety Policy, and an Arrangements and Procedures document created especially for those businesses in the building industry. These new documents all contain sections that will be relevant to any building contractors, including managing working at height, exposure to vibrating tools and working around moving plant.
These documents are fully editable and can be used by any sized business from a one man band upwards. They have been kept as simple to use as possible while still covering all the aspects of health and safety that a construction business should need to address.
All businesses should have a Health and Safety Statement
on display in the workplace. If your business has five or more employees you must also have a Health and Safety Policy
. The Arrangements and Procedures
aid your management of health and safety in the workplace and detail who is responsible for managing the various aspects of health and safety. Having properly written health and safety policy documents can also demonstrate to your potential clients that your Company takes health and safety seriously.
