Method Statements

Method Statements

Generic and inadequate method statements are growingly not accepted on sites by Clients and Principal Contractors.

At Perses we assist contractors in preparation of task specific method statements for their site work, with level of details as required by the nature and type of the construction work and taking into account the specific site information.

When required we also provide training to your staff in carrying out task specific method statements. Method statements provide a clearly defined execution of a particular process or activity and are written in conjunction with health and safety plans and risk assessments, to ensure work is carried out in the safest and most risk free manner possible.

By planning the activity or process before actually commencing it, it allows the opportunity to walk through the various stages or milestones, and therefore forecast or anticipate where likely issues or risks may appear. Suitable mitigation measures can then be sought, or in certain circumstances and where the method permits, alternative ways of working introduced.

Our clients find that using our consultants to produce method statements offers an objective perspective and avoids the risks posed by repetitive or habitual behaviour.

Over the years our method statements have removed bridges, dismantled tower blocks, felled cranes, moved explosives and been instrumental in major commercial developments around the UK.

We offer bespoke method statements with an additional option of 3D modelling/visualisation in the document.

Due to the nature of the industry we specialise in, the way work is carried out could potentially change in a single day. We make sure that you have all the support you need by being available 24/7.

Disclaimer: These Plan of Work documents are for demonstration/education purposes only, the content should only be used as a guide to form a task-specific version plan of works as with all method statements.
