What Is A Safety Statement

A Safety Statement is a plan, in writing, which specifically identifies the hazards, assesses the risks, identifies the controls to be put in place, the persons responsible and resources necessary to secure the safety of persons at work. It is required by Section 20 of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005.

How We Help

We create comprehensive Safety Statement’s in line with legislative requirements which addresses the major safety management, consultation and operational issues that apply to your activities.

The Safety Statement should be made available to all employees and other persons who may be affected by your activities.

The Safety Statement is reviewed on an annual basis or when there are legislative or work practice changes.

Who Is Responsible

Responsibility for safety proceeds from the Board of Directors, through the Managing Director, to all senior management and in turn to each manager, supervisor, team leader, and member of staff. It is the responsibility of all line management to ensure that employees are trained and motivated to comply with our company’s safety policy, safety statements, safety rules, procedures, safety standards and relevant laws.

Line management also has a responsibility to keep fully informed of the impact that activities under its control and ensure that they take corrective action as appropriate.

Equally all employees have a responsibility to protect their own safety and that of others affected by their work, to avoid behaviours that could result in injury to others and to cooperate in implementing the safety policy, rules, standards, procedures and guidelines.

Safety Statements

We continually invest significantly in health and safety, to support your health and safety policy objectives you should have the following;

  • A dedicated Safety Manager
  • Appropriate resources allocated for the implementation of the safety management system
  • On-going staff training and education
  • Online training support through Compliplus
  • Investment in plant and equipment
  • Conducting certification, inspecting and testing of equipment
  • Provision of appropriate PPE
  • The use of external advisors to assist with safety management

As a company we take the view that the money used to provide the resources associated with the management of safety, which goes to enhance the safety, health and wellbeing of our staff, is considered an investment and not a cost.
