This Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is a comprehensive document outlining the safety steps, main hazards, risks and controls associated with the general safety of Working in Hazardous Areas. This SWMS is to be used in conjunction with SWMS specific to items of plant (Graders, Excavators etc) and also in conjunction with SWMS that cover work areas where specific hazards are identified such as confined spaces, work at heights, work near electrical installations and underground utilities, work in trenches, work where Asbestos may be present, demolition areas, work with hazardous chemicals or hazardous atmospheres may be present, as required.
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.
