Method Statements

How to clearly and concisely explain the work you are undertaking

A safety method statement describes in a logical sequence exactly how a job is to be carried out in a safe manner and without risks to health.

It includes all the risks identified in the risk assessment, (which has been carried out prior to writing the method statement) and the measures needed to control those risks. This allows the job to be properly planned so that there are clear step by step instructions for operatives to follow and for the job to be properly resourced.

Safety method statements are most often found in the construction sector. They are particularly helpful for higher-risk, complex or unusual work (eg steel and formwork erection, demolition or the use of hazardous substances) as they provide information to employees about how the work should be done and the precautions to be take. Method statements provide the principal contractor with information to develop the health and safety plan for the construction phase of a project.

We are happy to help you with the preparation of your method statements.

Despite your reassurances and confidence that nothing bad would result from this unfortunate incident, we were worried throughout the time the legal people were writing rather nasty letters. We will always trust your judgement and will always want you to look after our health and safety arrangements.
