Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS)

 

A SWMS is a written document that sets out the high risk work activities to be carried out at a workplace, the hazards and risks arising from these activities and the measures to be put in place to control the risks. Its primary purpose is to help supervisors and workers implement and monitor the control measures established at the workplace to ensure high risk work is carried out safely. 

Download an example of a SWMS generated from the JSEAsy software.

Ensure your SWMS is worth the paper it is written on! A generic one statement catches all document is generally not adequate.

A Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) Must:

  1. identify the work that is high risk construction work; and
  2. specify hazards relating to the high risk construction work and risks to health and safety associated with those hazards; and
  3. describe the measures to be implemented to control the risks; and
  4. describe how the control measures are to be implemented, monitored and reviewed
  5. be prepared taking into account all relevant matters including
    1. circumstances at the workplace that may affect the way in which the high risk construction work is carried out
    2. if the high risk construction work is carried out in connection with a construction project—the WHS management plan that has been prepared for the workplace; and
    3. be set out and expressed in a way that is readily accessible and understandable to persons who use it


The JSEAsy SWMS Software   enables you to easily and quickly build a site specific SWMS by inserting templates of the steps that you are going to take in the order in which you are going to take them.


A person conducting a business or undertaking that includes the carrying out of high risk construction work must, before high risk construction work commences, ensure that a safe work method statement for the proposed work is prepared or has already been prepared by another person.
