The Importance of a Safety Policy

A safety policy is vital in setting the safety culture within a business. It outlines the way in which safety is managed, by whom and how it is measured. The safety policy also is endorsed by the leader of the business which makes them accountable to ongoing success of the safety system.

It should be reviewed annually as the way in which the safety system is managed could change and the review process will identify these changes. Its important to keep the safety policy up to date as it is displayed in prominent locations within the business and employees have access to it also.

Once the policy is in place and endorsed it will form the base for the rest of the safety system and how it will be integrated within the business.

So, first step is to write your safety policy!!!

Testimonials

Prompt Service

Hi Kelly and Alison,

Thank you so much for working on the WHS Manual last night for Peter Small Plumbing.

I can't tell you how much I appreciated your prompt service - I am sure this is above and beyond your service standard.

Please pass on to your management how thrilled I am with the service I received.

Sometimes you get a bit skeptical when you just google a product with no prior knowledge of a company - but I was desperate and I thought 'Oh well if I get ripped off - I'll just wear it' But from the very first email I received from Alison I could tell this was a professional business.

Thank you so much for helping me with this 'complex' issue of WHS. Thank you also for the helpful notes on 'Implementing a Safety System' (Very helpful for the novice !!
