The Concrete- Waffle Pod Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is a comprehensive 16 page procedure. This SWMS covers general aspects associated with handling, delivery and placement of wet concrete being placed into a waffle pod raft system.
This does not include suspended slabs, tilt-up/ pre-form slabs, formwork, work at heights or use of machinery associated with concrete delivery in sufficient detail. A dedicated SWMS must be developed for these tasks as appropriate.
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.
