Site Work Method Statement - Working on Scaffolding
This Building Task Method Statement Form (Worked Example) has been filled in to illustrate the sort of issues that need consideration when carrying out a method statement for a given task.
Writing a Method Statement is an important part of managing risks around the site. The task in this case would not normally need a method statement, but if you are on a large site 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, 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.
