Under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005, the employer/self-employed and persons in control of places of work must prepare a Safety Statement.
A Safety Statement is a written action document for safeguarding the health and safety of those at work. It details how health and safety is managed in the workplace to avoid accidents occurring.
The Safety Statement is based on the principle that safety can be managed because most accidents and ill-health are foreseeable and can usually be prevented.
We will collaborate with you to develop and create your site-specific Safety Statement, reflecting the outcomes from the Risk Assessment and the controls required to mitigate the risk from the hazards.
The Safety statement must be brought to the attention of the employees and any other persons who might be exposed. It must be in a form and manner and, if necessary, a language that can be understood by employees.
