H&S Policy - communicating

It is vital that the policy is communicated, otherwise it will be paper only exercise and make no difference. Options for communication include:

* Giving employees their own personal copy of the policy or a summary of it;
* Displaying the policy on noticeboards;
* Explaining the content of the policy at team briefings or tool-box talks
* Explaining it during induction or refresher training courses;
* Referring to the policy in internal newsletters, booklets, emails and intranet communications;
* Making the policy an agenda item at meetings of the health and safety committee.
