Ceilings and Partitions Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS)


People often ask, "Can I have a Safe Work Method Statement for Ceilings?" "A document that covers everything?"  The answer is not really. 

A Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) needs to document step by step how you are going to do a particular job. Not all jobs are the same! For starters how are you going to access the work area for a ceiling? Are you going to access  via a Mobile Scaffold or a scissor lift? Are you going to install a exposed grid ceiling or flush jointed plasterboard? 

 

Templates for creating a site-specific SWMS for suspended exposed ceiling grids are included in all versions of the JSEAsy safety software
Templates for creating a site-specific SWMS for plasterboard linings are included in all versions of the JSEAsy safety software
The steps and hazards are different for the different jobs, so your SWMS should reflect this.

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

 Watch a detailed demonstration video on how to create a new site specific SWMS using existing templates  

 

 

 

The JSEAsy software comes preloaded with hundreds of template (job steps) to build your site specific SWMS with. 

All versions include Safe Operating Procedures (SOP).

The JSEAsy Premium version is your total WHS/ OHS management system.
