Steel Construction Safe Work Method Statement:

The Steel Construction Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is a comprehensive 9 page procedure outlining the safety steps for Steel Construction. Steel construction involves erection of assembled portions and single components including columns, beams, bracing, rafters etc.

This SWMS covers general safety for steel construction. Steel construction involves erection of assembled portions and single components including columns, beams, bracing, rafters, flooring material such as steel decking and other related steel work.

This work activity involves the following “High Risk Construction Work”:

  • Involves a risk of a person falling for than 2 metres
  • Is carried out on, in or adjacent to a road, railway, shipping lane or other traffic corridor that is in use by traffic other than pedestrians
  • Is carried out in an area at a workplace in which there is any movement of powered mobile plant

Structures or buildings involving structural alterations or repairs that require temporary support to prevent collapse.

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.
