Plumbing SWMS

Plumbing Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS)

People often ask, "Can I have a Safe Work Method Statement for Plumbing?" "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 excavate and install sewer pipes, or are you going to replace an electric Hot Water Service?

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