1.3 Risk Assessment

Before any work commences on site the contractor shall nominate a competent person to be responsible for co-ordinating risk assessments of all operations where risk is foreseeable and ensuring that appropriate control measures are established and incorporated into safe systems of work. The contractor shall use these safe systems of work as the basis for the health and safety method statements. All method statements shall be developed in reasonable time to allow co-ordination of hazardous works.

The objective of risk assessment is to highlight project related hazards and to develop methods to deal with those hazards.

These assessments shall be in writing and include but not restricted to the following activities:

All risk assessments shall be reviewed and revised as necessary to accommodate any changes in methods of working, plant, equipment, material and/or site development. The management team will be available to liaise on all matters of health and safety relevant to these risk assessments.
