Painting and Decorating Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS)

There are many types of safety risks with such a wide range of painting and decorating tasks within the profession.

The Safe Work Australia publication (2019) shows the services sectors with the highest number of fatalities due to a fall from height were Painting & Decorating services - 8 fatalities.

A Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) needs to document step by step how you are going to do a particular job.


 


 

The steps and hazards are different for the different jobs, so your SWMS should reflect this.

  • Eye damage
  • Falling from heights (e.g., Ladders)
  • Muscle strain - musculoskeletal disorders
  • Inhalation of toxic and noxious fumes
  • Environmental - Spillage
