    Sounds like they are basically after a risk assessment and method statement to cover their ****.

    Copy & paste the questions so we can take a look

    Had to do a lot of risk assessments and method statements in my last employment in industry...it was power station work so even the simplest of tasks when putting staff to work had to be proceeded with a risk assessment/method statement and ensured staff that were to carry out the work had read/understood the risk assessment/method statement and when happy they signed to the above. There are a lot of different ways of creating RA/MS but basically its a process of identifying:
    1) Hazards for the task to be carried out
    2) Who will be at risk... I.e employee or public
    3) How high the risk (worked on a score count)
    4) Control measures to be put in place ( lower the score count)
    I'll see if I can find some old course work I did and post some examples
    Believe me I've had to write RA/MS for the most simple jobs in the past....even snow removal from site footpaths to cleaning site signage....
