Method Statement for Installation of Safety Crash Barriers
Purpose and Scope
This method statement describes the techniques and methods to be implemented and the resources to be utilized for temporary protection of “your project” existing load lines during the construction period of the project.
It will be achieved by installation of heavy duty plastic barriers filled with sand along the line at 15.00 m offset as shown in drawings attached in appendix B.
The scope of works comprises the following separate operations:
Mobilization of main and auxiliary equipment and personnel
Material delivery to the site project
Transportation of material to site
Installation of barriers
Filling of barriers
2.1The document governing the preparation, registration, approval, distribution and amendment / revision of this method statement will be according to requirement specified in “your document reference”
2.2The requirements for document numbering are addressed in the project specific procedure “your document reference” for Project Numbering of Documents and Records
2.3This method statement is a controlled document, and will be distributed as such to those detailed on the Internal Distribution of Documents Matrix maintained by the Document Controller, while external distribution will be via the Secretary.
The following documents define the requirements to be employed to demonstrate compliance of the works defined in this method Statement:

Materials and Equipment
The main material to be utilized for installation of Safety Crash Barriers is as follow:
Safety crash barrier 2000mmx950mm
All equipment to be deployed for installation of safety crash barriers will be well maintained and in good working condition. The lifting equipment will be third part certified and in compliance with the project’s HSE requirements.
The main items of equipment are as follows:
Land based equipment
7. Resources 7.1 Plant:
Land Based Equipment Low bed Trailer JCB loader/ material handler Truck tank
8. Methodology / Procedure 8.1 Mobilization Mobilization of equipment will be carried out through sea transportation. Mobilization of manpower will be carried out either by airplane or through sea.
Delivery of safety crash barriers
i) Crash barriers will be delivered to onshore logistic support facility located at “location” from where will be loaded on to land craft.
ii) The land craft carrying the crash barriers will sail to “your site location”. Proper protocols will be followed in relation to advance notice and use.
iii) The land craft will be berthed to “your site” jetty in coordination with port authorities. The land craft carrying the barriers will be fixed with access ramp that will be placed on jetty to provide safe access to land craft.
iv) Unload barriers manually and load on the flat bed trailer. Secure load on trailer using cargo belts.
8.3 Transportation of material
The materials loaded on trailer will be transported to site using predefined access routes as marked on attached drawing in appendix B
8.4 Installation In compliance with contract drawing plastic barriers will be provided along site existing loading pipeline as per following sequence. i). Prior to commence with installation, clearance of the area along route of the safety crash barriers will be carried out manually. Labors with manual tools like hand shovel/ rakes will be used clearing the area wherever required. ii). Mark alignment of crash barriers parallel to the load lines at 15.00 m offset by survey using measuring tapes. iii). Install barriers manually in line with the marking and joint them through pipe locks in accordance with manufacturer’s recommendation. The details of connection between safety barriers is shown in Appendix B iv). Necessary permits to work will be obtained prior to commence with any activity associated with installation, modification and dismantling. v). The crash barrier will be installed in distance 15.00 meters or more where possible from the pipeline and on west side of access road as shown on Appendix B drawings vi). Allowable speed of vehicles shall be in compliance with allowable limit 25 km/h vii). For night vision ability there will be placed blinkers and warning signs in the beginning and at the end of safety crash barrier alignment and wherever there shall be discontinuity of the alignment. Because of the colors (red/orange and white) of the safety crash barrier items they act as reflectors and generally these are visible during night.
viii). All barriers will be filled with sand and be stable on ground by their own total weight. ix). Wherever the alignment of safety barriers is reducing the width of access road necessary widening shall be made. 8.5 Filing of barriers The barriers shall be fully filled by sand. The sand will be partially sourced out from Island and partially from “specify location”. It will be loaded on the barge from “specify location”. jetty and transported to island.
During sand filling, material will be provided nearby using JCB/loader and filled manually through a funnel installed on openings provided in the barriers. Safety Crash Barriers will not be removed upon completion of the project and shall left as is.
Health, Safety and Environment
9.1 The works shall be carried out in compliance with the applicable HSE legal and contractual requirements. 9.2The significant HSE hazards and risks related to the works covered by this document have been identified, and documented in “HSE Risk Assessment” attached in Attachment A. 9.3 The identified hazards and associated risks and mitigation controls shall be communicated to the workforce through registered Pre-task briefings at the beginning of each shift.
