Guide to Writing an OHS Policy Statement cover

This resource from the Canadian Center for Occupational Health and Safety will help you to create an effective health and safety policy statement. It explains the types of issues that your policy should cover, key considerations, and includes an example of a policy checklist for reviewing new and existing OHS policies. The checklist is a good starting point for an OHS policy draft. It provides key prompting questions and includes essential topics and issues that need to be addressed. It also includes tools that will help you to introduce the policy, ensure that its objectives are clearly communicated and well-received, and create specific safety-related roles within the workplace. Although this resource was created for the Canadian context, the content is appropriate for any geographic or industrial context.
