Health & Safety Policies

Health and Safety Policies demonstrate your company commitment to the safety of your employees, In the United Kingdom if you employ 5 or more people then its a legal requirement to compile a company health and safety policy (The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974). These requirements vary around the world but most countries insist on a policy in one form or another.
