Health and Safety Policy
The Health and Safety Policy is a 5 page document, providing an about this document section, instructions on tailoring the document and a document revision record. The document then goes into the introduction and application of a Health and Safety Policy. The document lists the policies the company will follow, which can be edited to suit a company needs. It also includes what a company will expect from their suppliers, what happens if non-compliance with the policy occurs, the reporting requirements and who's responsibility, providing a space for a signiture.
This Health and Safety Policy outlines your organisation’s commitment to upholding health and safety values in your business activities and is an essential document for your business to demonstrate its corporate and social responsibilities.
Please check your national and local regulatory requirements as there will be a requirement by law to meet certain obligations in relation to health and safety. Promitheia recommends you undertake your own research and if necessary, obtain independent advice regarding your organisation’s obligations. This applies to the Australian and International standards for management systems of occupational health and safety. Australian Standards AS4801 and International standards ISO 45001.
Promitheia recommends making this Policy available to all employees, as well as featuring it prominently on your company website (if applicable). If you would like to know more about how to implement a Health and Safety policy, you can contact Promitheia directly to arrange a one-on-one virtual meeting. We also recommend updating this policy annually (or more frequently as required) to ensure it remains up to date with the United Nations principles.
