08) Does your organisation have a documented Health & Safety Policy?

August 20, 2021 Procurement Risk Registered Entity

Answer yes if your organisation has a documented Health & Safety policy. Please upload the policy (as a PDF file) as evidence.

Your company must comply with all law and regulation relating to Health and Safety in the workplace. The law requires all employers to have a Health and Safety policy.

A health and safety policy sets out your general approach to health and safety. It explains how you, as an employer, will manage health and safety in your business. It should clearly say who does what, when and how.

If you have five or more employees, you must write your policy down. If you have fewer than five employees you do not have to write anything down, but it is useful to do so.

How to implement the control:

The Health and Safety Executive within the UK has some great guidance on implementing Health and Safety controls within your organisation. It can be found on their website here.
