Method Statements

The procedures involved within the scaffolding industry have been devised over generations of expertise and continuous improvement to provide the safest way to deliver solutions for a variety of circumstances. This shall be adopted within all guidelines and scope of works, complying with all the relevant British Standards to the best of our abilities.

Risk Assessments

All actions involve risk, there is a potential in everything we do that something will not go to plan.  Risks are to be minimised, reducing potential, if there is no other way of doing it.

Every job must be evaluated before, during and after to establish the safest way of work for everyone and everything.

The list is endless, but the potential and the realisation can vary.  This should be established by competent people and worked where reasonably practicable.
