What is a safety statement?

Every employer is legally required to have a Safety Statement* under the Safety Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 (Section 20).

The safety statement is a document laying out how the company intends to manage health and safety for their business. 

 The basic structure of a safety statement should include:

  • Your Company Safety Policy
  • Your Health and Safety Responsibilities
  • Your Health and Safety Arrangements e.g. Safety Training , Safety and Health Consultation
  • Written Risk Assessments detailing Hazards, Risks And Control Measures
  • Emergency Plans and Procedures

A Safety Statement needs to be specific to the organisation and its activities. 

At OSS Ltd we understand that organisations will differ with regard to the hazards and risks associated with their business and the amount of help and assistance they require to prepare, update, review and audit their safety statement.

Our competent staff can assist you with your safety statement preparation. Whether you need a little bit of help and guidance or require more detailed and structured consultancy.

We believe in involving management, supervision & employees to produce a safety statement that is a workable and realistic document that everybody can use.

*Employers working in the construction industry with less than 3 employees can utilise the HSA's Code of Practice. For more information regarding the Code of Practice, contact the HSA on 1890 289 389 or email wcu@hsa.ie
'It shall be sufficient compliance with this section by an employer employing 3 or less employees to observe the terms of a code of practice, if any, relating to safety statements which applies to the class of employment covering the type of work activity carried on by the employer.' (Section 20, Part 8, Safety Health and Welfare at Work 2005)

How much does a safety statement cost?

The cost of your safety statement will depend on the complexity of your business and the risks associated with your workforce.

At OSS Ltd we understand that businesses will differ with regard to the hazards and risks associated with their business and the amount of help and assistance they require to prepare, update and review their safety statement.

 

We are committed to providing a site or company specific safety statement that reflects the actual safety arrangements of the organisation and not a generic mass produced document.
