The recent weather has caused thousands of fences to be blown over giving landscape gardeners and fencing companies a surge in work. So this month Simply Docs has drafted a set of Risk Assessment Form templates especially for such activities. These forms cover the range of tasks you would expect to have to do on many projects, from unloading materials, to digging or using a CAT scanner or breaker.
These fencing risk assessment forms are fully editable to suit your project. We have, however, populated the hazards and controls boxes with suggestions to facilitate the form filling process and prompt relevant observations in respect of the potential hazards that may arise in each location/project.
Your domestic clients will probably not ask if you have them, but if you do any work for commercial clients they may well need to see them before they will allow you to start work. Whether or not you are asked for them, it is a legal requirement to carry out such risk assessments.
