Safety Statements


What is a Safety Statement?

All organisations are required to complete a regular safety statement. This statement must be implemented at all levels in the organisation, integrated into all activities and communicated to every member of the workplace.

Legal requirements:

Under Section 20 of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005, all organisations must compile a safety statement which;

  • Specifies the manner in which the safety, health and welfare at work shall be secured and managed.
  • Is based on a systematic risk assessment
  • Details the protective and preventive measures taken and the resources provided for protecting safety
  • Specifies the duties of all employees regarding safety, including employees with specific safety responsibilities
