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

Demolition Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS)


People often ask, "Can I have a Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) for Demolition Work?" "A document that covers everything?"  The answer is not really. Well you could create a document that covers most areas of Demolition 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 demolish or remove an existing kitchen or demolish a multi story building?

Are there hazardous substances involved?

Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) templates for inspection and use of excavators and hydraulic shear attachments are included in all versions of the JSEAsy safety software
Demolition work can be very strenuous with risk of personal injury including, Muscle strain - musculoskeletal disorders, Eye injuries, Hearing damage, Back injury, burns, physical overexertion and more

On one job you may be removing members using a crane. On the next job you may simply be lifting them out by hand or using a genie lift. 

How are you going to access your work area? From a step ladder or a platform ladder? From a scissor lift or a boom lift? From a mobile scaffold, or working off a modular steel scaffold?

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 demolition job by adding templates of the steps you are going to take, in the order in which you are going to take them.
