This SWMS provides guidance on safe work procedures when working in excavations greater than 1.5m deep. This includes working adjacent to mobile plant, shoring and trench shields, hazardous atmospheres and contaminated ground, contact with overhead electrical services falls and general safety items such as PPE and hazardous manual handling procedures.
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.
For works carried out on a regular basis a generic SWMS may be prepared and used for those work activities.
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.
