From the code of conduct to social media in the workplace
3) Policy on Health and Safety at Work
It is in every company’s interest to prevent accidents in the workplace and promote the good health of employees. This policy should document the company’s responsibilities and duties to ensure safety in the workplace. The policy should also include any procedures and instructions for work which involves particular risks and conduct in emergency situations.
Companies should always introduce policies based on a company-specific risk assessment. In addition, companies should regularly review whether a new policy is necessary if and when changes occur in the company or within the legislative environment. Careful introduction and communication of policies within the company is vital.
