Small/Medium Company Building Health and Safety Statement
This Small/Medium Company Building Health and Safety Statement has been designed for a small or medium sized company and sets out the company’s commitment to safeguarding their employees' health, safety and welfare at work. It is recommended that all companies (irrespective of size) should at least provide a statement of their intent to develop and maintain a health and safety action plan. This Health and Safety Statement is the first step in that process.
If your company has 5 or more employees you must have a signed Health and Safety Policy in addition to the Health and Safety Statement.
This Small/Medium Company Building Health and Safety Statement has been written to comply with the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 which sets out employers’ health and safety duties.
This statement, when complete, must be signed and dated by the most senior person in the business and displayed at the premises.
