Grinder Information:

The Grinder Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is a comprehensive 13 page procedure. This SWMS covers general aspects associated with hand-held grinders.

The Grinder Work Method Statement (WMS) 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 Grinder Work Method Statement can be used as part of your OHS inductions, for Tool box talks or tender applications.
