                                    Painting Contract:
    N.B. All works to be in accordance with specifications pre-agreed with the Client


General Method Statement
1. Site operatives required for this task to be issued with the requisite PPE, which will be
    overalls and safety boots, prior to task commencement.
2. Site operatives required for this task to have attended Client induction prior to being
    permitted to work on site. The task specific elements and risks will then be discussed by
    Tom Deacon, Contracts Manager of VVV Painting and Decorating, with the operatives,
    prior to task commencement.
3. Barrier off and sign each working area before task commencement*.
4. Ensure working areas are clear of any furnishings and equipment prior to task (as most of
    the work is in corridors and stairways, this is not a major issue, but the disabled stairlift
    facility will be isolated and disengaged from the wall prior to start). All movement of
    furniture, equipment etc. would be done prior to task commencement by others. Painters
    will only move any residual small items as approved by the Client if found to be
    obstructing the task.
5. Cover floor areas, and any fixed furniture and equipment that cannot be moved from the
    areas, with sheeting prior to commencement of task.
6. Access to working areas at height in corridors will be from floor level as ceilings are low
    in many places. Where upper walls require additional assistance to access, this will be
    using steps (below 2m standing height above ground level). Mobile tower (for access
    above 2m standing height above ground) will be used for the access in the entrance lobby.
    Tower will be erected by trained and competent persons. Full edge protection will be
    present on working platform.
7. Access to the high level landings on stairwells (where upper walls are higher and,
    potentially, a fall could be through the stairwell over 3-4 metres) will be by the use of a
    boarded out trestle system which will be used to effectively block off the areas below the
    landings and thus prevent a fall from height by providing a temporary “crash decking” at
    that point.
8. Lay out protective coverings for floors and other surfaces
9. Strip walls by hand by dampening paper, stripping surface by hand, and using wire brush
    to facilitate dampening on any awkward areas.
10. Key paint surfaces by rubbing down and washing with water to clean surface.
11. Apply paper by brushing adhesive on rear of paper on bespoke portable table. Using
    access as mentioned above paper will be hung in situ. Paper will then be smoothed in
    place with a soft brush and seams fixed down with a surface roller
12. Apply paint by brush and roller as appropriate to task area to completion of project.
13. Remove access equipment and sheeting from areas and move on.
14. Remove signs and barriers and leave site.

*N.B. Work in any area which cannot (for safety reasons) be segregated from the Client’s
employees, will be carried out after hours or at weekends when the regular occupants of the
building will be absent.

Any other comments on access method selected;
Only in the entrance lobby and stairwell is there any significant risk of a fall. However the measures
to be implemented will reduce the risk in these areas to a low risk value.

objects, falls from                            After a tower has been erected, the following checks should be made before it is used:

                                                Check that all baseplates or castor wheels are fully in contact with the ground, including those on
                                                    stabilisers or outriggers. All castors should be properly locked.
                                                Check that all the spigot and socket joint locks holding the frames together are secured.
                                                Check that all the bracing members have been located exactly in accordance with the instructions
                                                    in the supplier’s manual.
                                                Check that all guardrails and toeboards are in position as required.
                                                Check that all access stairways and ladders are in position and are firmly located.
                                                Check that the base to height of platform ratio does not exceed 1.3 when working externally; or at
                                                    a ratio of 1:3.5 when working internally.
                                               During use, the tower should be kept in good order. A competent person should inspect the tower
                                               regularly to see that the structure has not been altered in any way. Should parts become lost or
                                               damaged, they should be replaced before the tower is used again. Any mobile tower that is erected for
