The Asbestos - Non Friable - Removal Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is a comprehensive procedure outlining the safety steps, main hazards, risks and controls associated with the removal of non-friable asbestos.
Exposure to Friable Asbestos can lead to serious illness and fatality from mesothelioma, asbestosis and lung cancer. An exposure standard exists for asbestos – being 0.1 fibres per mil of air (in a person’s breathing zone averaged over 8 hours).
Remember: The content of the SWMS should be refined over time and include consultation with workers and other persons conducting a business or undertaking. Prior to each new activity, the SWMS must be reviewed and revised to ensure it applies to the high risk construction work and the actual site you are working at.
