Electrical Health and Safety Policy Template

Electrical Health and Safety Policy Template

Created by our health and safety experts, this electrician health and safety policy is specifically written for mechanical and electrical contractors. Buy our M&E company health and safety policy today and start using it immediately.

If, as a company, you have fewer than five employees including company owners or directors, you don’t have to have a Company Health and Safety Policy in place. However, most CDM sites, principal contractors and local authorities won’t consider using any Mechanical & Electrical company that doesn’t have their own Company Health and Safety Policy, so you may lose out on projects.

By using our fully-editable template, you’ll reduce the need for extensive signatures, alterations and amendments to personalise them to a specific company or a specific contract that has been awarded.

As with all our documents this health and safety policy is in Word™ format and is available for instant download.

Each of our documents has been created by our health and safety experts, so you can give yourself peace of mind that you are legally compliant, without breaking the bank. We’re on hand to help - contact our team if you have any questions.

As you can see from the contents table below, our health & safety policy for M&E is a full and comprehensive document that covers safety management structure; setting out both the employee’s and employer’s responsibilities.

It also lists  safe working practices and includes such things as the accident reporting procedure, manual handling and first aid procedures.
