Introduction to this document

Safety briefing - H&S policy

Whilst your health and safety policy isn’t the kind of document you would expect staff to be leafing through regularly, it’s important that they understand the basics, including their own responsibilities. Use our briefing to explain it to them.

Fulfil your duty to inform staff

Under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, employers with five or more employees must produce a health and safety policy and bring it to the attention of staff. It must include a statement of policy and explain how it will be implemented and by whom.

Our Safety Briefing - H&S Policy is designed to assist managers to deliver a 15-minute training session on the topic.

Note. Before you start ensure you have a copy of your health and safety policy. You may wish to make a handout of employees’ responsibilities from the policy.
