All employers including the self-employed must have a safety statement relating to their workplace and work activities. The safety statement must be based on the risk assessment of the hazards that may affect the employees or visitors. It is the place to record the significant findings of any risk assessments. This means writing down the more significant hazards and recording the most important conclusions. The safety statement must be brought to the attention of the employees and to any other persons at the place of work who might be exposed to the specific risks outlined in the safety statement. When bringing the safety statement to the attention of employees, it must be in a form, manner and, if necessary, a language that can be understood by employees. See HSA,ie for more.
