Building & Construction Risk Assessments

Building & Construction Risk Assessments

Risk Assessments are required by law, method statements are requested by main contractors, local authorities and just about every possible client today. The death rates on our contruction sites is still high, most of these have been preventable.

With falls from height being the biggest killer and from HSE prosecutions far too many people are ignoring carrying out risk assessments and then determining how to stop or at the very least reduce the risks involved, this mentality was the norm 20 years ago but in 2012

with corporate man slaughter a reality why are people still dying on building sites?.

Every person employed is responsible for his/her safety, supervisors are there to ensure that safe work is carried out, managements role is the supervision and management of health and safety, whilst company directors are responible for health and safety for the entire company and all staff. There are certainly breakdowns where responsibility is often "passed down" to people who should not take on the role without full training along with experience, therefore the correct people should carry out the risk assessments and method statements and convey the risks and safe work practices to the workers concerned.

 

Our Builders Mega Pack contains the most common risk assessments as well as a few method statements, all pre-completed, simply check your sites specific risks are included, and print!
