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.

    We recently had major flooding and this SWMS was invaluable thanks to Safety Culture for getting it out to us when we needed it.

    Posted by on

    I run a restaurant and have recently had a lot of problems with flooding. This SWMS lets us safely clean up and get back on our feet as soon as possible. It's a hard life but that's what you have to live with if you want to be the best Sushi chef in Atlantis. Also this website is amazing! Thanks for a job well done to the awesome guy who works on it!
