We take safety seriously at Gutter-Vac and because we do a lot of commercial work where this is a requirement, we use a Safe Work Method Statement for every job.
Now what is a Safe Work Method Statement you may ask?
Basically this is a way to work safely on a site, especially a commercial or construction site.
Think of it like a recipe on how to work safely, going from A to B or doing XYZ. In our case in particular, it is how to get on and off a roof safely plus also how we work whilst on the roof.
Of course, no two properties, no two work sites are the same. This means that when we arrive at any site, we must assess the site and conditions in which we will be working and then adapt to be able to work safely in this new situation. This is called a risk assessment.
The Safe Work Method Statement is the guide to help us ensure safety at all times, no matter what site we are on.
Most companies are only required to use or to have on hand for commercial or construction sites, but we use a Safe Work Method Statement for all the work we do, including your home. Safety is important and we take it seriously.
If you ever have a question about how we carry out our work safely, feel free to give us a call and discuss any questions or concerns you may have. We are more than happy to share what we do and how we do it…. Safely.
