The health and safety rules set by principal contractors often extend beyond the RAMS pack we provide. These rules may include policies related to lone workers or equality and diversity, which we do not cover in our pack.

If you have more than four employees, you are legally required to have a company health and safety policy. However, this policy is not specific to any particular contract. Instead, it outlines how your company manages health and safety and who is responsible for what. Therefore, we do not include this policy in our package.

The core documents we provide in this pack are:

Risk Assessments: These documents are a legal requirement and assess a task for potential hazards and the likelihood of them occurring. If risks are found, control measures are documented that either eliminate the risks or bring them down to acceptable levels.

Method Statements: These are not required by law but usually need to be provided at the principal contractor's behest. They list the work order and any safe working practices that need to be followed.

COSHH Assessments: These are a legal requirement and show the work exposure limit, hazards to health and environment, first aid, and firefighting measures for substances used or that people may come into contact with in the workplace.

Buying these documents as a package saves you over £35.00 on the list price. It’s a download in docx format, designed for ease of use. This allows you to add your logo and company details to the cover page using Word™ or the processor of your choice, and then the documents are ready to go.

It will increase your chance of winning tenders and has been written by trained health and safety professionals, which makes it:

  • Recognised by local authorities.
  • Recognised by principal contractors.
  • Suitable for CDM sites.
  • Approved by H&S managers.

Carpet fitting is considered a safer trade than most sectors in the construction industry as there is very little work at height, and most asbestos-containing materials, such as floor tiles and floor adhesives, are considered a lower risk than Aertex, asbestos insulation, and cement-based products.

Slips, trips and falls at the same level and manual handling injuries are significant hazards, with cuts and grazes from knife blades and carpet grippers also being common.

Musculoskeletal complaints can occur from carrying out manual tasks such as using knee kickers and low-level working positions, and the risk of occupational diseases, including dermatitis from chemical contact and respiratory disease from dust inhalation, is relatively common.

Although RSIs, hearing loss and vision impairment are risks from using power tools, the average time a carpet fitter spends using these is relatively low.

Formal training can be provided to your staff in several ways. You may send them to a training centre, invite training providers to your premises, or opt for online training courses. These options are particularly beneficial for courses such as manual handling and slips, trips, and falls, which are relevant to your trade.

Less formal training can often be more practical for specific sites. This type of training allows you to communicate site rules, safe working practices, and expectations for staff on particular sites. You can use toolbox talks, safety fliers, posters, or site inductions to convey these messages effectively.

At HSEDocs, we stopped providing classroom training as the demand for online training became the preferred option. However, we still believe that staff training is imperative to communicating the message of safe working practices.

A relevant selection of training we advise includes:

  • Asbestos Awareness.
  • Slips, Trips and Falls.
  • Manual Handling.
