Organisations communicate their intent to manage and improve health and safety through policy statements. The safety policy must be communicated to the workforce so that everyone understands how health and safety is managed.

The safety policy should: 

  1. provide the Chief Executive’s or Managing Director’s commitment to health and safety
  2. emphasise the importance of staff working safely
  3. set out the roles line managers and staff have to carry out
  4. encourage employees to raise safety concerns.
