The health and safety policy must be signed by the top management to show the commitment to workplace safety and health. It also gives authority to the policy means someone will be responsible for ensuring the policy.

    The health and safety policy is a written statement of commitments, objectives and goals. It should cover all aspects of activities carried out by an employer. It should suit the company as there are no legal requirements on what it should include, and it should be regularly updated.
