A Safe System of Work

A Safety Method Statement describes in detail and in a logical sequence exactly how a job/task is to be carried out in a way that secures health and safety and includes all the control measures.

The method statement is an effective way of providing information to employees about how they expect the work to be carried out and the precautions that should be can be undertaken separately or as part of the Health & Safety Plan.

Safety Method Statements take into consideration, risks identified by the risk assessment and communicate the safe system of work to the personnel carrying it out, especially for higher-risk complex or unusual work (e.g. scaffold and formwork erection, confined space entry).
