A Job Safety Analysis (JSA) is most commonly referred to as a Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) in Australia

Bricklaying Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS)


People often ask, "Can I have a Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) for Brick Work?" "A document that covers everything?"  The answer is not really. Well you could create a document that covers most areas of brick and block work, but it would be hundreds of pages long and would contain more items that did not apply to your project, than items that did. 

A Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) needs to document step by step how you are going to do a particular job. Not all jobs are the same! Are you going to install bricks to a single story or a 2 story house. Brick or blocks? Are you going to cut your bricks with an angle grinder or a petrol powered brick saw?

The steps in undertaking each of these tasks are very different. Not only are the steps different, but the potential hazards and the hazard control measures are very different as well.

The JSEAsy software builds your site specific SWMS for your electrical job by adding templates of the steps you are going to take, in the order in which you are going to take them.
