Carpentry Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS)


People often ask, "Can I have a Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) for Carpentry Work?" "A document that covers everything?"  The answer is not really. Well you could create a document that covers most areas of carpentry 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 build wall frames on the ground, or install roof trusses at heights? Are you going to use a pulse nail gun or a pneumatic nail gun? Installing Cement sheet eaves linings is very different to hanging doors.

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 carpentry 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 1st fix carpentry to new dwelling using a Pneumatic and Impulse Nail Gun
  1. Site Orientation/ Induction
  2. Claim work area
  3. Marking Out Slab or Ground
  4. Inspection and use of electric air compressor
  5. Daily preoperational inspection of a Pneumatic (Air) Nail Gun
  6. Carrying materials from storage area to work area
  7. Manufacture timber wall frames using a mitre saw and Pneumatic (Air) Nail Gun
  8. Cut timber studs, plates and noggings to size using an electric mitre saw
  9. Lay studs, top and bottom plates on ground in pace to be fixed
  10. Nail timber studs, noggings and plates together using a pneumatic (Air) nail gun
  11. Stand up wall frames
  12. Set up trestle scaffold
  13. Install timber roof trusses by hand
  14. Cut timber using a circular saw
  15. Install ceiling joist, Hanging beams, stabilisers, etc
  16. Nail timber together using an Impulse (gas) Nail Gun
  17. Cut timber using a battery powered circular saw
  18. Installation of Timber Purlins
  19. Cleaning up work area

  1. The main process step
  2. The sub process steps associated in undertaking the task
    1. The potential hazards associated with undertaking the task (you can also delete or add any of these with a simple click)
