This SWMS provides guidance on working with materials containing respirable crystalline silica (RCS) dust. This SWMS should be used for work in which RCS dust or materials containing RCS dust are encountered in the workplace. Examples may be found in many materials common to construction sites such as soil, sand, concrete, masonry, rock, granite and landscaping materials.
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.
