Who should prepare a Method Statement?

Anyone who is preparing to oversee a hazardous task, for example in the construction industry, should write this safety statement before the work begins. It should be written by someone who has a clear idea of how the work will be carried out and what safety measures will be involved. It should be prepared in conjunction with those who are involved in the task.
