Safety Statements – Are you Compliant?

All employers including the self-employed must have a Safety Statement relating to their workplace and work activities. Too often HSA Inspectors come across generic Safety Statements that are prepared by someone with no real understanding of the activities undertaken in the workplace. LCE can help you!

The Safety Statement must be reviewed and, if necessary, amended as required. This should be done on an annual basis or more frequently if for example your business changes and your employees are exposed to new hazards e.g. the introduction of new machinery or new work practices

The Safety Statement must be brought to the attention of the employees and to any other persons at the place of work who might be exposed to the specific risks outlined in the document. When bringing the Safety Statement to the attention of employees, it must be in a form, manner and, if necessary, a language that can be understood by employees.

The HSA have a great free Safety Statement development on line tool - called BeSmart  - we would recommend the use of this tool. However, if you don't feel confident to complete the Safety Statement using this tool or if require competent advise on Safety Statement preparation or revision for 2018 - contact us today for a quote on 051 364344 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
