The Cement Render Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is a comprehensive document outlining the safety steps for cement rendering, specifically covering the task of cement rendering on walls of buildings.
Safety Data Sheets (SDS) must be obtained for all chemicals (cement & cement products) that are to be used during this task.
This SWMS does not cover working on scaffolds, working on trestles, working on ladders, using a cement mixer and working with hazardous chemicals in sufficient detail. Dedicated SWMS should be obtained and developed for these tasks, and for any risks not covered in this SWMS.
It is recommended that SWMS specifically covering the following tasks should be used in conjunction with the Cement Rendering SWMS:
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
This SWMS includes:
This 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.

After spending over a week trying to do up my own SWMS for mine and my husbands new business, it was taking up so much time that I didn't have. After having a look at my options online, safety culture was not only great on price but had exactly what I needed and it literally took 5 minutes to buy and print out. I felt very relieved :)
