The Tower Crane Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is a comprehensive procedure outlining the steps for safely drilling samples. This SWMS covers the erection, operation and dismantle of a tower crane. A tower crane means a crane with a boom that is mounted on a tower structure and includes self-erecting tower cranes.

The Tower Crane procedure is ready to use and is not a blank template. Simply add your company details, ABN, and include any site specific details or risks and make it specific to the task at hand. It is then ready for printing and to be incorporated as part of your overall OHS System. The Tower Crane Work Method Statement can beused as part of your OHS inductions, for Tool box talks or tender applications.

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.
