    Hi all can anyone help me with this??
    been asked for copies of Health and Safety and Method Statements??
    to do a two storey office building.
    This is our first big comercial job, not done anything like this before, I understand there will be official hoops to jump through, just after a bit of advise.
    As just an average traditional window cleaner with a ladder, no wfp, this is new to us is it worth persuing??
    Is this easier than i am thinking?

    thanks john

    Method Statement, Risk Assessment and copy of Public Liability Insurance.

    This sounds complicated but is quite simple.

    The insurance speaks for it's self.
    Risk assessment. Give lots of thought to the dangers not only you will be in but that of the public milling about. Talk of signs, cones and safety barriers.
    Method statement is what it says. Write out how you will go about carrying out the work, in detail.

    I have had to do this before and thought it sounded complicated but once I got into it it was quite simple.
