This Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) outlines the general safety steps, hazards and controls associated with aspects of rescue operations in confined spaces. It does not provide detailed instructions for an actual rescue as circumstances will change in different situations.
Save time with our pre-filled, fully customisable templates. Simply add your company details 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.
Confined Spaces Rescue 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.
