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

Solar System Installation Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS)


People often ask, "Can I have a Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) for installing solar energy systems?" "A document that covers everything?"  The answer is not really. Well, you could create a document that covers most areas of the solar and electrical work, but it would be hundreds of pages long and would contain more items that did not apply to your project, than items that did. 

A Safe Work Method Statements (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 install solar panels to a domestic pitched roofed residence or a flat roof multi story building?

 

 

There are countless ways to control the risk of falling from heights
Weather you want to pull up materials by hand, use an EWP or lift using a crane, The JSEAsy safety software has you covered.

A Safe Work Method Statements (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 pass up your support framework and panels by hand, or load them into a scissor lift and transfer to the roof? Maybe you will use a crane to lift up all of your materials.

Are you going to access the roof via a ladder or a scaffold, or maybe from a scissor lift or a boom lift? Perhaps the solar panels are being installed onto framework on the ground.

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 solar system installation job by adding templates of the steps you are going to take, in the order in which you are going to take them.
 
Creating a site-specific SWMS is easy using the JSEAsy safety software. Once created you can print a report generated from the JSEAsy Health Safety and Environmental (HSE) software.
