RAMS Preparation and Review
Whether tendering for a contract with a principal contractor or a client, or preparing to carry out works for a client as the sole contractor on a project, you are required to assess and determine appropriate controls for any hazards your employees, or other persons are likely to be exposed to due to your work activities.
“I’ve been on a first aid course at the uni of Bristol for the last 3 days with a trainer called Matt. I just wanted to email to say that he gave us some of the best first aid training I’ve ever experienced (and honestly, some of the best teaching I’ve ever received full stop) – everyone I spoke to during the course agreed with me that he was engaging, patient, personable and knowledgeable. The time passed so quickly because it was clear how much he cared and how much he wanted to give us his knowledge, not just because it was his job but because he, personally, wanted us to be well equipped to give people first aid in real life. Thank you for sending him! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to my colleagues, friends and family, both as a trainer and a first aider.”

Why do our customers choose us?
Being refused a contract by a client or overlooking hazards which may lead to injuries to employees may result in financial and/or legal implications can be very damaging to your business. Often this can be avoided through detailed risk assessments and method statement (RAMS) documents specific to each project.
Acorn Health & Safety is a leading provider of health and safety training and consultancy in the South West. Our trainers and consultants come from a wide variety of professional backgrounds and have considerable, hands on practical experience which is reflected in our grounded, pragmatic approach.
Customers come from an equally diverse range of organisations and businesses but choose Acorn because we’ll keep you on the right side of the law, whilst recognising that health and safety needs to compliment your day to day business activities.
How do we support customers with RAMS preparation and review?
Working with you either over the phone, in our office or at your office for simple jobs, or by going on site for more involved projects, we can assist you in developing robust risk RAMS documents which will help you to determine the hazards and control measures required to keep your employees and others safe on projects you undertake.
Where your submitted documents have already been refused as part of a tender procedure/PQQ process, we can assist in bringing these up to the specification required by the client/principal contractor to improve your chances of winning the contract.
What should you expect from Acorn Health & Safety?
We will provide assistance in putting together detailed general, generic and project specific RAMS documents in order to satisfy the needs of your own project hazard control, or in assisting you with tenders/PQQ applications to clients.
We will review rejected documents and with your assistance, develop more robust RAMS which should prove acceptable to your clients.
We will assign you a dedicated and competent health and safety professional who will gain an understanding of your needs and be on hand to provide any help, advice or comment you need.
Any documentation produced will either be uploaded to our cloud based storage system provided electronically, or as a hard copy in the required format. Following any piece of consultancy work we are available by phone or on e-mail, so you can contact us easily, if you need our assistance or further advice.
