At Citation, we provide method statement support to give a competitive edge to small-medium sized businesses across the UK. We have 25 years of experience working with organisations in the construction sector, helping to support them in the tendering process and in always ensuring safety.
Method statements are essential for managing Health & Safety risks in a workplace. They outline the steps you need to take to carry out tasks safely, as well as specifying any resources needed.
Method statements are documents that provide clear instructions on how to carry out a job safely, to prevent potential accidents.
The aim of a method statement is to make sure the right people are appointed to complete the work. A method statement will help to ensure the safety of employees while also providing a clear schedule for all those involved – including any special measures. For example, if any part of a building needs to be closed temporarily, or if power needs to be isolated.
Method statements are used in lots of sectors, but they’re predominantly used in the construction industry. They fall under the requirements of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 and are seen as one way of meeting your duty to assess, manage and communicate Health & Safety risks.
A risk assessment method statement (RAMS) includes step-by-step instructions on how to carry out a job safely. It also includes details of the risks associated with the activity. Anyone should be able to pick up these documents and understand the risks and what they should do to mitigate those risks.
A risk assessment is a process carried out by an appointed Health & Safety inspector to identify potential safety hazards. RAMS are the documents they use to detail the findings of their risk assessment.
