The Remote – Isolated Work Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is a comprehensive procedure outlining the safety steps for working in isolation (alone).

The Remote - Isolated Work, Work Method Statement (WMS) is ready to use and is not a blank template. Simply add your company details, ABN, and include any site specific details or risks and make it specific to the task at hand. It is then ready for printing and to be incorporated as part of your overall WHS System.

Emergency situations may arise because of the sudden onset of a medical condition; work-related injury or disease; attack by an animal; exposure to the elements; or by becoming stranded without food or water. The consequences are potentially fatal for people 'working alone' and unable to get immediate assistance from colleagues or other people.

The Remote - Isolated Work, Work Method Statement can be used as part of your WHS inductions, for Tool box talks or tender applications.

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.
