What health and safety policies are necessary for a small business?
Generally, most workplaces should at least have the following policies in place:
- workplace health and safety policy;
- drug and alcohol policy;
- workplace bullying, discrimination and harassment policies; and
- smoke-free workplace policy.
Depending on the nature of your business, it may also be important to include additional policies, such as those relating to fatigue management, machinery operation and incident investigation.
