Workshop/Factory Health and Safety Policy Statement
This Workshop or Factory Health and Safety Statement has been specifically written for a business that operates predominantly from a workshop or small factory. It is intended to be suitable for a company of any size from a ‘one man band’ upwards, and sets out the business’ commitment to safeguarding their employees' health, safety and welfare at work.
If your business has 5 or more employees you must have a written Health and Safety Policy in addition to this health and safety statement.
This Workshop or Factory 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. Having a Safety Statement is the first step in ensuring your compliance.
When signed and dated by the most senior person in the business this statement should be displayed in your workplace to demonstrate compliance.
