The necessity for a health and safety policy is enshrined in the Occupational Health and Safety Act.
A health and safety policy is a statement of intent that is written by an employer documenting the company's principles and goals embodying the organisation's commitment to protecting the health and safety of the employees and the public.
Procedure documents describe the actions that need to be taken to implement the principles and goals set out in the health and safety policy.
A health and safety programme contains the company's health and safety objectives, making it possible for the company to reach its goals in protecting its workers at the workplace from work-related accidents and occupational disease. Every organisation has unique needs and scope for specific elements that are required in its health and safety programme.
