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 electrical 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.

The JSEAsy software comes preloaded with hundreds of templates (job steps).

Below is an example of templates you may insert into your site specific SWMS for bricklaying to a new residence
  1. Site Orientation/ Induction
  2. Claim work area
  3. Deliver materials and tools to site and unload manually
  4. Carry bricks using a mechanical brick carrier (Clamps)
  5. Distribute brick around site using a brick barrow
  6. Installation of viscourse
  7. Set up Profolds to corners
  8. Set up mortar boards
  9. Connect hose to existing water supply tap
  10. Mixing cement with a portable petrol powered mixer
  11. Push Wheel Barrow on site
  12. Cut bricks using a petrol powered brick saw
  13. Lay bricks
  14. Cleaning up work area
  15. Set up trestle scaffold
  16. Carry bricks using a mechanical brick carrier (Clamps)
  17. Load bricks onto scaffold by hand
  18. Bricklaying
  19. Installation of lintel  by hand
  20. Wash down brick wall
  21. Wash out mixer
  22. Cleaning up work area

When you insert a template it automatically brings with it:

  1. The main process step
