This is a care home health and safety policy specifically written for businesses in the care home sector. If this doesn’t fit your business, we have a comprehensive range of other policy documents on our website.

Once you have five or more employees including company owners, directors and sub-contractors, the law requires you to have a Company Health and Safety Policy in place.

It must be a written policy and must demonstrate your commitment to health and safety at the workplace and often includes additional commitments such as environmental issues and equality and diversity statements such as the ones included in this policy.

A health and safety policy in residential care homes should contain an in-depth policy, outlining all of your HSE policies and procedures. It should cover the organisation’s safety management structure setting out both the employee’s and employer’s responsibilities.
