This SWMS covers basic information in respect of a company motor vehicle accident. This SWMS covers the occasion when a company vehicle which is being used / driven by workers for approved work purposes and journeys during work time, is involved in a motor vehicle accident. This SWMS does not cover in detail post accident hazards, risks, actions or controls relating to personal injury of workers or other persons, and does not cover matters relating to Worker’s Compensation or Return To Work for injured workers or other persons. Dedicated policies and procedures should be developed for these matters, and for any risks not covered in this SWMS. Environmental risks may include injury to animals and/or damage to plants and/or ground contamination caused by fire, explosion or spill of fuels as a result of vehicle accident.
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.
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.
