The Hot Water System Installation Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is a comprehensive procedure outlining the safety steps for the installation of a hot water system.

The Hot Water System Installation SWMS 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 WHS System.

This Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) provides guidance on the safe installation of Hot Water Systems.

This SWMS covers the removal of an existing hot water system, unloading and loading units onto vehicles and replacing or new installation of a hot water system.

This SWMS does not cover the installation of hot water systems on roofs or any other location that involves working with cranes or other lift equipment at height.

Recommended companion SWMS:

  • Oxyacetylene welding

The Hot Water System Installation Work Method Statement can be used as part of your WHS 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.
