Purpose Of Three Main Sections Of An Organization’s Health And Safety Policy

Following are the purpose of three main sections of an organization’s health and safety policy



  • Statement of intent – which both demonstrates management’s commitment to health and safety and sets goals and objectives for the organization,
  • Organisation – the purpose of which is to allocate health and safety responsibilities within the company and to ensure effective delegating and reporting and finally,
  • Arrangements – section which sets out in detail the systems and procedures that show how the policy is to be implemented.

The health and safety policy should be signed by the most senior person in an organization, such as Managing Director or Chief Executive Officer because of the following reasons:

  • Signature of the most senior person in the organization would demonstrate management commitment
  • Give authority to the policy or that the person concerned ultimately had responsibility for health and safety in the organization.
