Site Specific SWMS (JSA, JSEA, JHA)
This is where you enter in details for your site specific SWMS. Note the reference to "SWMS" will change to "JSEA" or "JSA", or "JHA" depending on the selected region.
You can build your site specific SWMS from scratch, however it is usually easier to build it by inserting templates of the steps that you are going to take in the order in which you are going to take them.
- Insert existing SWMS/ JSEA/ JSA/ JHA Templates into your site specific SWMS
- Click on the insert SWMS template button on the RHS of "New Main Process Step"
- After inserting a SWMS template if you click on the Main process step, it will select it and highlight in green
- When a Main Process step is highlighted in green the associated sup process step will also be highlighted in green
- If you click on a potential hazard associated with the sub process step, it will be highlighted in green, and the related control measures will be displayed
- From there you can add or delete any entries (main or sub process steps, potential hazards, or control measures.)
- click on View/ Edit Signoff List to take you back to the previous window
- Select PPE required for your job
- Select/ Edit the duties and responsibilities, Licencing, training requirements etc.. for your job
- if you find an error in the list of Potential Hazards and control measures you can edit them here

If you are going to make a SWMS for a task that you are like to do over again, you are better off making a template that contains all of the job steps, and then inserting tat template into your site specific SWMS. (Note you can not copy an existing site specific SWMS into another job.)
