If you operate a small business then you must ensure your policies have a health and safety plan included within them. This document is important as it outlines to all your staff, suppliers and contractors what the rules are for your business. The last thing you need when operating a business are issues with regards to safety. Your team's safety is important and keeping your team members safe is critical.
The template of a proposed health and safety measure should first include the department or division of the government or other bodies that is the addressee of the proposal; the law that is involved, of which compliance is a must; the summary of what the law is requiring the company as regards health and safety; other necessary information or other pertinent laws; the proposal number, or any equivalent identification; the date of posting, and the summary of the proposal. This summary may be short but should be concise. It should only include the essentials.
The template itself provides guidance and milestones so that you can measure your progress. If you are not achieving the results you want, you can revisit the template to check that you have not overlooked something or misinterpreted what is required.
Really, creating a health and Safety Plan template should not be an onerous task. Using templates certainly save significant time and effort and also allows you to spend more time on the aspects of your business that are more important. Use templates and save yourself the headache. The amount of money it costs to buy a template far outweighs the time it will take for you to create your own from scratch.
