RISK ASSESSMENTS METHOD STATEMENTS (RAMS) TRAINING focused on Construction Sites

Course Introduction

The presence of suitable and sufficient Risk Assessments and Method Statements (RAMS) for relevant site activities is an integral part of construction site health and safety requirements.

A Risk Assessment identifies the potential risks and corresponding control measures for any site activity, whereas a Method Statement provides a step by step sequence of that activity to be completed in a safe manner.

Project managers, site managers and supervisors, trade and specialist contractors and self-employed contractors are required to write and review Risk Assessments and Method Statements (RAMS) for their site activities. Clients of construction projects are also sometimes expected to approve Risk Assessments and Method Statements.

Good Risk Assessments and Method Statements (RAMS) demonstrate that health and safety risks in the proposed site activities have been thoroughly thought and safe methods of work have been planned to manage the identified risks on site.

This training course is solely focused on the construction industry and other relevant sectors and is designed for attendees to learn, with the aid of practical hands-on tutorials, how to write and review Risk Assessments and Method Statements (RAMS) for their activities.

This training course is intended for anyone who is responsible for writing, reviewing or approving Risk Assessments and Method Statements (RAMS) for construction site related activities and particularly for construction site professionals (site engineers, managers, supervisors etc), trade and specialist contractors and self-employed construction contractors.
