What is a Safety Statement?

A Safety Statement is a written document that is an important part of any business or company and more importantly, it is a legal requirement. Your Safety Statement will display the company’s commitment to Health and Safety and how it will be managed. Under section 20 of the Safety Health and Welfare at work Act 2005, “the employer must ensure the Health and Safety of their employees and any other people who may visit the workplace such as visitors, contractors, etc”

Your Safety Statement must be available to all staff, it must clearly show that you have identified all hazards, completed risk assessment, and put the appropriate control measures in place. Your Safety Statement must be reviewed whenever a significant change takes place or at least annually.
