Site Work Method Statement – Painting and Decorating
This site method statement for exterior and interior painting and decorating works has been completed in order to illustrate the sort of issues you would need to address when carrying out painting or decorating works either on a domestic or commercial project.
Writing a method statement is an important part of managing risks around the site. Carrying out painting or decorating works within a domestic property would not normally need a method statement, but if you are on a large site/development or commercial project the Principal Contractor may need to see one.
This worked example draws on a variety of real life situations; some of the hazards identified may be relevant and others may not. How you fill in your own form will differ and will depend entirely on your company’s/client’s current health and safety procedures, but those shown provide an idea of how they could work.
This form has been professionally written for you to either print or fill in while carrying out your assessment on location or to use simply as a template. You may also find it useful to refer to some of the worked examples and the guidance notes.
