Working at Heights Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS)


People often ask, "Can I have a Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) for Working at Heights ?" "A document that covers everything?"  The answer is not really. Well you could create a document that covers most areas of Working at Heights , but it would be hundreds of pages long and would contain more items that did not apply to your project, than items that did. 

The obvious hazard when working at heights is, "Falling From Heights".  There are countless ways to control the risk of falling from heights. The way to control this risk will vary from job to job when taking into consideration what it is that you are doing, and all of the variables of the environment.

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 paint a flagpole from a boom lift, or install roof sheeting on a multi story building?

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 Working at Heights 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. Not just the part about working at heights, but all of your job steps from start to finish.

The software also includes Safe Operating Procedures (SOP). The JSEAsy Premium software is your total WHS management system.

At the bottom of the page there is examples of templates you may insert into your site specific SWMS for the task you are doing at heights, as well as the equipment you may be using to access the work at heights.

When you insert a template it automatically brings with it:

  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)
    2. The Risk Rating for undertaking the task (You can also change this if you want to)
    3. The Hazard Control measure (you can also delete or add any of these with a simple click)
    4. The revised risk rating after applying the control (You can also change this if you want to)
    5. Any required PPE (you can also delete or add any of these with a simple click)
