You can the edit the Risk Assessments to suit the works, on the last page you can add a company logo if you wish and then after submitting the questionnaire a method statement will be emailed to you a few minutes later. Don’t forget to check your spam folder as sometimes it goes in there.

We think we should have the main things covered like Groundwork, Blocklaying, Roofing, Glazing, Plastering, Plumbing, Electrical, Flooring, Painting & Decorating, Gardening, Landscaping or Paving and are always adding to the list of Risk Assessments but if you think that something should be added then feel free to contact us.

Here is one that we made earlier using the tool, Its a fairly fictitious one but one should get the general idea.
