A good health and safety plan should be detailed enough to highlight all the things you need to consider any health and safety events that could occur in your business. Obviously there will be some things that are specific to your business, however there are certainly things that will not be specific. These would be typical items that could be relevant to any type of business.
The template of a proposed health and safety measure should first include the department or division of the government or other bodies that is the addressee of the proposal; the law that is involved, of which compliance is a must; the summary of what the law is requiring the company as regards health and safety; other necessary information or other pertinent laws; the proposal number, or any equivalent identification; the date of posting, and the summary of the proposal. This summary may be short but should be concise. It should only include the essentials.
Some businesses may be less physically risky, but are involved in the health and sanitation of customers and clients. They would also need a health and safety plan to ensure the welfare of both their employees and customers. These businesses include restaurants, fast food establishments, food manufacturing firms, and even logistics and transportation companies. Such a plan for health and safety would benefit the smooth operations and success of their businesses. For all these companies who may not have a plan for their health and safety yet, a template is a great starting point.
Almost all types of businesses are required to submit a health and safety plan, but there are those that most especially need it. These are business involved in the fields of construction, real estate development, mining, power generation, surveying and engineering, and others. These businesses are quite large in scope of operation, involving a substantial number of employees or workers, and with inherent occupational hazards due to the conditions they operate in.
