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 workshop or factory based business should need to address. Many small companies who use these locations to work in supply their products to the building industry and so may need to prove their ‘health and safety competence’. Even if your business only supplies non-building clients, having properly written health and safety policy documents can demonstrate to them that your Company takes health and safety seriously.
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.
