Method Statements

Controlling safety through detailed processes

A Method Statement is a document which details the way in which a work task must be completed. Also known as Safe Systems of Work, these statements are useful in ensuring your business is compliant with Health & Safety regulations. Whilst they are not a legal requirement, like a Risk Assessment, they are an invaluable tool for allowing jobs to be properly planned and resourced and could help you win business. They are most commonly used in the construction industry to advise employees and/or contractors on the best way to perform tasks safely. DCL can help identify where they are needed.
