We’ve heard from some of our customers that before signing up to HANDS HQ, up to 95% of their RAMS documents were being rejected by their clients, for the same reasons, again and again.

This was frustrating for our customers, but it is even more frustrating for the client, who constantly receive stacks of RAMS from all their sub-contractors, most with the same mistakes.

So we’ve put together a handy list of the top mistakes and how to avoid them.

The 7 common mistakes

  • Repurposing an old RAMS document
  • Not identifying who’s at risk
  • Not including a risk matrix in your risk assessments
  • Not considering your method statement methodology with care
  • Not having a system in place for quickly making updates
  • Not including the site rules in your method statement
  • Including out of date legislation in your documents

Check out the Slideshare presentation above to see the consequences and solutions for each of these.

HANDS HQ helps you avoid all of these mistakes, reducing rejection, saving time and making you and your client very happy!

For those on a budget, we’ve added a free construction risk assessment and method statement template to our resources section to get you off on the right foot.
