Generate a Free Site-Specific Safety Statement including Risk Assessments

Chippy Working

Site Specific Safety Statement

Part A of the Safety Statement includes your policy document, safety arrangements and site-specific information which will help in managing day-to-day safety requirements on site. The following is a sample of the templates available in the Safety Statement;

  • Method Statement Template
  • Registers e.g. Induction, PPE, Training
  • Accident Investigation Forms

Part B of the Safety Statement will include your completed risk assessments which you will develop using BeSMART.ie

On completion of the risk assessment section, users will then be able to download their Safety Statement in either RTF (Rich Text Format) or PDF. We recommend using the RTF option as you can edit this version

  1. Select your business type
