Shop Health and Safety Policy
This Shop Health and Safety Policy has been written specifically to suit a small shop that you may find in a high street or local parade. It has been written to cover both lock up shops and those with accommodation or offices/storage above. The premises may be a place of leisure for your guests, but is also a workplace for your staff and you have a legal duty to keep all who use your premises safe from harm, this includes your staff as well as customers and delivery drivers.
If you employ five or more staff the law says you must have a full written Health and Safety Policy. This policy and the two documents that accompany it – the Standard Health and Safety Statement and the Standard Health and Safety Arrangements & Procedures, when used together, set out your commitment to safeguarding the health and safety of your employees and customers.
This document is broken into sections for ease of use. It includes the statement of general policy, then further sections that state the health and safety duties of the senior management including where relevant the designated health and safety person.
When signed and dated by the most senior person in the business this retail policy will affirm your business’ determination to be compliant with health and safety legislation.
This template is fully editable so you can adapt it to be completely relevant to your own premises.
