Free Method Statement Template

Would your business benefit from a free method statement template? Our free template will help you understand what’s required in a method statement and what to include when writing it. 

Why are method statements important?

As a business with five or more employees, you’re legally required to have an up-to-date risk assessment in place under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999. 

This means you should also have an adequate method statement template that shows how you plan to reduce the risks identified in your risk assessment. Smaller businesses with less than five employees may choose to carry out risk assessments and complete a method statement if the work they carry out is of higher risk – such as working in construction.   

This free method statement template is ideal for people who are:

  • Self-employed
  • Performing high-risk work
  • Carrying out work at height
  • Working with electronics
  • Carrying out risk assessments

What to include in your method statement?

To help manage your workplace risks and their control procedures effectively, we’ve put together this free method statement template which includes information on the following:

  • All the possible workplace hazards that apply to your business
  • The control procedures you need to have in place for every possible scenario
  • A step-by-step process, to be completed by your Competent Person, so people can continue working safely and compliantly
