Safety Statements Service

If you operate a business in Ireland, then the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 states you must have a valid and relevant safety statement for that business.

A safety statement is a written document, signed and dated by the employer, and sets out how the employer will safeguard:

  • The safety and health of employees including temporary and part time workers, at their place of work;
  • The safety and health of other people (including but not restricted to customers, contractors, visitors and members of the public) who might be at the workplace, including

The Safety Statement expresses the company's commitment from the highest level of management to ensure the safety and health of their workforce. Furthermore, it commits the company to providing the resources necessary to maintain safety and health laws and standards.

All Safety Statements must be site specific to the business activities for which they are written. Despite this, many so called professional firms offer generic Safety Statements for businesses -These are both dangerous and indeed illegal.

So why take the chance? Failure to have a relevant up-to-date, site specific Safety Statement can result in the Health and Safety Authority initiating criminal proceedings against owners, Directors and Senior Managers of those offending firms.
