The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act, 1989 requires all employers to prepare a Safety Statement in writing for their workplace.
A comprehensive Safety Statement is a practical tool for reducing accidents and ill health at work. The Safety Statement is based on the principle that safety can be managed, since accidents and diseases are foreseeable and can usually be prevented.
This Sample Safety Statement provides you with an outline of information that should be included in your safety statement. This template can be easily tailored and altered to meet your business needs.
