Scope of works

Scope of works

To start a contract on the right footing, use our scope of works document to set out the details of the job and your safety rules.

What’s covered?

Give contractors any room for manoeuvre and they may take advantage of the situation, leading to poor standards of work and safety. However, if you set out your position right from the start, you should be in for a much smoother ride.

What to do?

At the tender stage you should present potential contractors with a completed Scope of Works. This will detail what is to be completed, start and finish dates, hours in which the works can be completed, details of your premises and any significant hazards that the contractor needs to be aware of.   

The safety angle

As well as helping to get the job done, by supplying the contractor with this information, you will satisfy the legal requirements in the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 and the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015.

In summary

These regulations demand that you make any potential contractor aware of site-specific risks that they may encounter on your premises, such as asbestos, fragile roofs, etc. This information must be shared early enough to give the contractor the opportunity to price in the associated costs of working safely, e.g. using scaffolding, specialist access equipment, etc.

Note. We have listed some of the most common site-specific risks. If you have any that are not listed, these should be added.
