A health and safety policy sets out your general approach to health and safety and 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.
Accident & Incident Investigation
An effective investigation requires a methodical, structured approach to information gathering, collation and analysis. The findings of the investigation will form the basis of an action plan to prevent the accident or incident from happening again and for improving your overall management of risk.
A workplace inspection can help identify hazards or processes that are not working efficiently, highlighting areas that require improvement before they lead to an accident or incident. Therefore, workplace inspections are an effective tool for helping to prevent incidents, injuries and illnesses.
