Many companies need a work method statement. A method statement is quite simply a document that lists how a particular task or activity will be carried out. It should detail the possible dangers/risks associated with your particular part of the project and the methods of control to be established. It should show how the work will be managed safely. The method statement will outline a step by step guide on how to do the job safely and will include all hazards involved.

While it is not required by law to have a method statement it will often be included with a risk assessment, which will assess what is needed to be done and if there are enough safety procedures in place or if anything else needs to be put in place to minimise any risks.

Hart Safety are asked regularly to prepare these documents on behalf of our clients for each stage of a project. From soft strip, demolition and site set up to painting and decorating. You will receive a detailed report stating how to eliminate and control all kinds of risks. It will be easy to follow and to easy understand. We will tell you how to complete tasks in the correct manner.

Should you require Hart Safety to supply you with a Risk Assessment and Method Statement (RAMS) then all we ask is for you to provide us with what details you have on a project and we will then gather all information necessary to prepare and develop this statement to an acceptable standard and produce the permits to work systems and safe systems to work.

The Process

  • We will ensure that all health and safety risks have been identified

When it comes to method statements we would also be happy to review any of these and existing RAMS that you have been provided with to ensure that they are fit for purpose.
