Documented health and safety policy and risk assessments are required for businesses that employ five or more people or carry out work that impacts others.

Documents & Procedures

Depending on the size of your company and the processes you use, there may be a requirement for a number of documents and procedures with regard to health and safety. 


As a minimum, a documented health and safety policy and risk assessments are required for those businesses with five or more personnel. This includes people who may work for you on a self-employed basis. 

Safe working procedures may be required for a variety of activities, from lone working to using heavy or specialist equipment or plant.

  1. 1
    My business is office-based. Surely I don’t have to worry about health and safety?

    Even low-risk businesses have to take account of the health and safety of their employees and visitors. The law says that if you employ five or more people you must have documented risk assessments and a health and safety policy. Fire precautions and first aid are your responsibility. If your employees regularly use computers you have responsibilities under the Display Screen Equipment Regulations 1992.

    All of them relating to health, safety, environment, quality or employment. Contracts, terms and conditions, policies, procedures, risk assessments, method statements, waste management… the list is long and we will be able to help you with any of them.
