Installation of Suspended Sanitary Waste by plumbers requires Appropriate Safety Procedures to be used. This Suspended Sanitary Waste Work Method Statement (SWMS) is a comprehensive document outlining the safety steps, main hazards, risks and controls for Suspended Sanitary Waste.
Suspended Sanitary Waste is the plumbing process of laying the suspended PVC waste piping to multi level premises or on the roof of concrete basements. All Plumbers installing Sanitary Waste are required to implement a Safe Work Method Statement.
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.
This Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is provided in the following document formats
Save time with our pre-filled, fully customisable templates. Simply add your company details, ABN, and include any site specific details or risks ensuring it is specific to the task at hand. It is then ready for printing and inclusion in your overall WHS System.
