Method Statement Writing Service
What Goes Into A Method Statement?
Method statements must be written by a competent person familiar with the work processes, health and safety control measures and the requirements of a Method Statement.
Method statements should also contain information concerning the order and method of construction with reference to specific work procedures. On some sites method statements are a contractual requirement, requiring submission to the Principal Contractor, client or engineer for approval prior to the commencement of works.
Whilst there are no standard formats for Method Statements, the following aspects should be considered and included in your method statements:
W orking systems to be used Arrangements for access e.g. to roofs Methods for safeguarding existing structures Structural stability precautions, e.g. temporary shoring Arrangements for protecting the safety of members of the public Plant and equipment to be used Fall protection Materials required Hazardous substances Training requirements Health protection arrangements Procedures to prevent local pollution Segregation of specific
areas Procedures to ensure compliance with legal requirements
Method statements may also incorporate information and specific requirements laid down by clients, enforcement officers, the police, local fire authority, manufacturers and suppliers of plant, equipment and substances and health and safety specialists. In certain cases, the method statement may identify training needs for those carrying out the work and the use of competent persons or specially-trained operators for certain activities.
