A company’s Safety Statement is a written document that describes how Health and Safety within that company is managed. A Safety Statement is a manager’s duty of care to their employees, stating how they intend to manage risks and hazards in the workplace. In order to comply with current legislation, an up-to-date written Safety Statement must be implemented by all employers, including the self-employed.

A Safety Statement is—

  • Based on a risk assessment of your business
  • Site-specific for your organisation/business
  • Specific to your work practises and/or procedures
  • The employer’s responsibility
  • A legal requirement under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005, Section 20.
