    Every house or business should have a risk assesment completed on it. when you go to price up a commercial its worth puting the quote in writing and include the risk assesment in with it.

    its a section of writing saying about all possible risks that could happen on site, like cars, lorries, people etc.

    i do them to all customers.

    it is good practice to do them as this bit of paper will cover your **** if anything should happen to you.

    A risk assessment is a form that you fill in that has all the risks you think you might encounter on each job and how likely these risk are to happen, they should also be followed up with a method statement a method statement is a plan of action you are goin to take whilst on the job from parking to all safety measures you plan to put in place, if you need any of the forms or would like a look at on send me a pm

    I think it's more of a must than looking like a pro H, it covers your **** from all corners.
