Horticulture Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS)

Horticulture Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS)

People often ask, "Can I have a Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) for Horticulture Work?" "A document that covers everything?"  The answer is not really. Well you could create a document that covers most areas of horticulture 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 cut down a tree using a chainsaw or plant trees and shrubs?

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 horticulture 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) to build your site specific SWMS with. It also includes Safe Operating Procedures (SOP). The JSEAsy Premium software is your total WHS management system.
