 High risk construction activity                      Working on, or adjacent to, a road

If	your	work	procedure	or	activity	identifies	the	need	to	work	on,	or	adjacent	to,	
a	road,	then	it	is	a	high	risk	construction	activity,	and	you	will	need	to	develop	a	
work	method	statement.

The	following	is	a	generic	work	method	statement.	It	cannot	be	used	as	a	work	
method	statement	onsite,	unless	the	project-specific	section	has	been	completed.

It	must	be	reviewed	prior	to	undertaking	the	activity,	and	all	site-specific	details	
must	be	documented.

Project-specific details
The following instructions are in addition to the standard work method statement instructions above
and are specific to this project only. This section must be developed after a project-specific risk
assessment has been conducted, and must take into account all hazards associated with the activity.
For further assistance or information, contact your local Safety Coordinator/Officer.
For generic work method statements, the only section that can be edited is the project-specific details.
If instructions in the generic section are not being followed, this should be outlined in the
project-specific details and an alternative method must be documented.
