What is a Health & Safety handbook template?

All businesses should have a Health & Safety handbook that outlines how your business approaches things such as first aid and risk assessments, and the roles and responsibilities of employers and employees.

It’s a legal requirement for every employee to have access to relevant Health & Safety information, which makes your Health & Safety handbook a must-have piece of documentation.

It explains what a Health & Safety handbook is, what needs to be included, and how you should use it in your business, to make it easier for you to tick off your legal obligations and protect your people.
