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

There are hundreds of different SWMS templates included in the JSEAsy safety software to use for your landscaping

Landscaping Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS)


People often ask, "Can I have a Safe Work Method Statement for Landscaping?" "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! Are you going to lay synthetic turf, or are you going to build a retaining wall?

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 landscaping 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  

Just like planning your landscape design, you need to plan how to do the job safely.
SWMS for brick paving are included in all versions of the JSEAsy safety software

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.
