A Safety Statement is a written document which specifies the manner in which health and safety is to be secured and managed. They are based on the identification of hazards risk assessments drawn up by or on behalf of the employer. Safety Statements are required by both employers and self-employed individuals in Ireland as part of Section 20 of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005. Under this act employers and self-employed individuals are required to prepare a safety statement, which must be kept up to date and must be communicated to staff in a form, manner and language which they understand.
At Business Safety we produce Safety Statements based on these risk assessments which are conducted on site at the place(s) of work. It is drafted by us before being forwarded to you for review. Once amendments have been made, we provide you with a soft copy, which you can edit and change as you wish.
