      Health & Safety Policy creation

      The Howarths team will create a range of Health and Safety policy documents for businesses that are tailored and specific to them. Some examples include manual handling, fire safety, access and egress, lone working and more.

      There is a legal obligation for businesses to have a Health and Safety policy when it has 5 or more employees. This policy must be updated regularly, and it is recommended annually, or when things change within the business.

      We create the necessary policies for a range of different businesses across all sectors. Whilst in certain sectors Health and Safety is particularly important, all businesses in all sectors must be aware of their obligations and have the necessary paperwork in place.

      First and foremost, having an expert tailor your documentation ensures it is relevant to your business and meets with the relevant legal requirements. Further, having a policy that includes all the pertinent risks within your business helps prevent accidents and incidents initially, but also offers the business protection in the event of an incident occurring.

      Safety Handbook for employees

      Safety handbook is a really important part of an employers paperwork and is used to communicate to employees their responsibilities and help them understand their own obligations.

      An employee safety handbook will be drafted specifically for each organisation, and will contain provisions that employees must follow when at work ranging from DSE equipment to manual handling and anything in between.

      The obligation is that an employer has a policy and communicates it to their employees, in doing so making them aware of their own responsibilities and helping the company stay compliant. A handbook is a simple and effective way to communicate this in further detail and specifically to employees.

      The Howarths Health and Safety team create safety handbooks for a range of different businesses across all sectors including manufacturing, logistics and retail, to name just a few.

      Having an expert tailor your handbook ensures it is relevant to your business and allows you to easily communicate expectations and responsibilities to employees. From there, having a handbook that includes all risks within your business helps prevent accidents and incidents initially but also offers the business some protection in the event of an incident occurring.
