Health and Safety Policy
Posted by David Cant on December 22, 2010

Why a health and safety policy should be a VITAL element of your business.

A health and safety policy is a core element of your business. It’s the guide from which every health and safety related issue can be addressed. A good health and safety policy will cover every potential threat to the safety of your staff and premises – giving you a comprehensive plan of exactly what to do in any situation.

It’s the finalised set of instructions which can help govern your entire health and safety practices. It helps to avoid any confusion and avoid any discrepancies. It’s a fixed, fool-proof set of rules which you and your staff can follow to keep themselves safe.
It’s also an incredibly important part of ensuring that you don’t face a legal backlash in the event of workplace injury or damage. This is because a lack of a health and safety policy can show that your business may be negligent in certain health and safety duties.

All in all, it’s worth having a health and safety policy which provides watertight rules and regulations to keep everyone safe. At Veritas Consulting, we can help you obtain just that.
