This SWMS is created in response to the needs of first respondents for ‘making safe’ tasks after an emergency event. As such, this SWMS may refer to additional high-risk SWMS for further detail. This SWMS provides guidance on making roofs temporarily secure after the roof has been damaged from storm, lightning etc. The SWMS covers access to single story buildings via an extension ladder.
This SWMS does not cover the specific setup of particular height access equipment. Unless otherwise mentioned in this SWMS a separate, dedicated SWMS will be required for the set-up/erection of height access equipment such as Mobile and Fixed Scaffolds, Mobile Elevated Work Platforms, installing edge protection etc.
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.
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.
