Reduce time spent completing Risk Assessments & Method Statements
BSG RAMS is a software module created by the Building Safety Group (BSG) and used by over 800 UK construction companies to carry out multiple Risk Assessments, Method Statements, and COSHH Assessments (RAMS). The software has been specifically developed for the building sector with over 120 different types of Risk and COSHH assessment templates available to use. Each template has been created by highly qualified BSG employees who have recognised ‘Chartered Safety & Health Practitioner’ status.
Use BSG RAMS to create, edit, duplicate and download RAMS documents, which can be sent to your colleagues, business partners and clients, helping you to demonstrate your health and safety competence as well as meet your legal obligations. All of our RAMS templates can be customised to match your business and trade. Templates are also pre-populated with recommended control measures for each hazard, which can be edited accordingly to suit the work being assessed. Your users can securely log in to BSG RAMS at any time to safely manage their Risk Assessments, Method Statements and COSHH Assessments all in one place.
Task based risk assessments
You can use BSG RAMS to build task-based risk assessments by selecting and assessing all of the hazards relevant to the ‘job in hand’. This means multiple hazards can be assessed within one task or job, rather than having to evaluate each hazard separately. It will save your business considerable time when assessing larger projects.
Each BSG RAMS template is pre-configured with its own set of unique control measures relevant to the hazard being assessed. Users simply have to apply a risk rating for each hazard appraised, using our 5 x 5 risk evaluation matrix. The matrix will automatically calculate scores accordingly based on risk severity and likelihood.
Users can then apply a residual risk rating once the control measures have been considered. After an assessment has been completed, it can be saved as a PDF before being emailed to the site location where the construction work taking place.
