Work Undertaken in Private Residences Information:
This SWMS is intended as guidance for employees required to go to a private residence to undertake work (such as locksmiths, maintenance workers etc). No employee should be sent to a site without communication devices (mobile phone with service for the area, and if possible, GPS devices).
This SWMS does not cover hazards and risks identified for specific work tasks (such as using ladders, painting, building repairs, using chemicals, using power tools, asbestos disturbance etc), or for any task, which would meet the criteria of High Risk Construction Work under WHS legislation. Dedicated SWMS should be developed for these tasks, and for any risks not covered in this SWMS.
This SWMS includes:
- Safety Notes
- Pre-Operational Inspection
- Working at Residence
- Emergency Procedures
- Employee sign off section
- Hierarchy of Controls
- Risk Assessment Matrix

- Employees to attend only the site directed by Supervisor.
- Code words should be established to indicate employee is in threatening situation.
