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

Precast Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS)

Precast Construction (SWMS)

The construction of buildings and structures using precast or tilt-up concrete elements or panels can be a complicated process involving a range of employers and other persons.

There are many safety risks related to handling, transportation, and erection of precast construction. The transport of precast panels/elements exposes workers to the risk of falls from height during the loading and unloading process.
    Inadequate inspection and maintenance of critical components increase the risk of catastrophic structural or mechanical failures.

    Australian Government Building and Construction WHS Accreditation report (2018) shows that 2.6% of the injuries are due to tilt-up and precast concrete construction work.


    The JSEAsy Safety Management Software builds your site-specific Safe Work Method Statement for a Precast job by adding templates of the steps you are going to take, in the order in which you are going to take them.

    These are some of the hazards:

    • Falling from heights
    • Falling objects, e.g., concrete panels
    • Crushing
    • Risks associated with mobile plant
    JSEAsy Safety Software builds your site specific SWMS for precast construction
    You can download an example of full and simplified report

    You can control these hazards so many different ways for example:

    • Ensure correct use of PPE
    • Never walk between suspend panel and a fixed object
    • Working from the ground
    • Working from a solid construction (platform)
    • Use of temporary work platforms (elevated work platform, scaffold)

    Creating a site-specific SMWS is easy using the JSEAsy safety software. Once created you can print a report generated from the JSEAsy Health Safety and Environmental (HSE) software.
