This Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is a comprehensive document outlining the safety steps, general hazards and controls associated with the preparation and laying of waterproofing internal wet areas, balconies and roof tops.
If the rooftop does not have an edge barrier (able to support the weight of a person in motion) with a minimum height of 900mm, you will require a ‘working on Roofs SWMS’ that details how the risk of a fall will be reduced or removed.
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.
Waterproofing SWMS Content:
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.
