Heat Stress Safe Work Method Statement

This SWMS covers working in excessively hot environments (such as on roofs, foundries, etc.). The effect of heat and high humidity on the body is not based on air temperature alone; radiant heat, high humidity, hot objects, or strenuous physical activity may also impact the health of an individual. Thermal comfort is subjective, but generally, conditions above 26 degrees C and, relative humidity higher than 60 per cent may cause heat stress which may require controls to be initiated.

Ready to Use

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.
