Simply put, if you own or operate a business you must have a Health &Safety Policy, if that business employs 5 or more people that Health & Safety policy must be written down.
A good policy should be one of the most important documents within your business as it forms the foundations of your safety management system, and sets out the businesses Health and Safety objectives, responsibilities and arrangements and enforces the company's commitment to good health and safety delivery (the content of the policy and the level of detail contained within should be proportionate to your business and its associated risks.).
