The Safety Harness Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is a comprehensive document outlining the safety steps for the use of a safety harness. This SWMS covers the selection, inspection, fitting and use of a safety harness system for fall arrest.
Ensure an emergency response plan is developed, implemented and rehearsed for each site where persons are using a harness. The plan should ensure rescue of any fallen person wearing a harness is done within 5 minutes of fall. A person left for 15 minutes or more can die from suspension trauma.
This SWMS includes:
Employee sign off section
Hierarchy of Controls
