What is a safety statement?

  • Emerald SSP

    A safety statement represents a commitment by an employer to health and safety, and is managed by the employer.

  • Emerald SSP

    In accordance with the Safety, Health & Welfare at Work Act 2005, all employers are required to hold a written Safety Statement.

  • Emerald SSP

    A safety statement is established through the identification of workplace hazards and completion of a workplace risk assessment.

  • Emerald SSP

    Safety Statements should influence all work activities, including the selection of competent people, equipment and materials, the way work is done, how goods and services are designed and provided.

Professional Safety Statements & Method Statements

Emerald Health and Safety provides professional Health & Safety service portfolios nationwide, required by all businesses to comply with national HSA regulations and insurance obligations. Ideal for the smaller-scale company or sole trader that cannot afford a permanent Health & Safety officer, the portfolio includes access to a mobile app (iOS or Android) that holds all live regulatory documentation in a convenient and easily accessible manner.

What does it cost?

Pricing varies according to your number of employees. We can certainly assure you that Emerald's cost and service will not be beaten.

Why is it important to carry out a Risk Assessment and prepare Safety Statements?

  • Emerald SSP

    Legal Reasons

    Carrying out a Risk Assessment, preparing Safety Statements and implementing what you have written down are not only central to any safety and health management system, they are required by law.

  • Emerald SSP

    Financial Reasons

    There is considerable evidence, borne out by companies’ practical experiences, that effective safety and health management in the workplace contributes to business success. Accidents and ill-health inflict significant costs, often hidden and underestimated.

  • Emerald SSP

    Moral and Ethical reasons:

    The process of carrying out a Risk Assessment, preparing Safety Statements and implementing what you have written down will help employers prevent injuries and ill-health at work.

How Emerald Engages with You

Our client's input is the key to compiling an accurate Safety Statement. Firstly, we obtain your information, including: work sector, description of works, equipment/machinery used, and your number of employees. Once established, we you through a hazard identification questionnaire, to allow us to refine your risk identification and define controls to deal with them. When this is complete we begin compiling your Safety Statement.

The more accurate information you provide, the stronger your Safety Statement becomes. Other documents  build on the Safety Statement to form a solid health and safety portfolio for your business. These include insurance details, training certification for employees, and procedures for work and use of equipment.
