This pre-filled Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) includes information to assist in the identification of effective Traffic Management Risk Controls with the view of ensuring that all reasonably practicable steps have been taken to prevent the likelihood of any traffic related incidents while work is conducted on or near a road. This document is intended for use as an attachment, to be used in addition to the relevant SWMS for the specific work being conducted in a traffic corridor.
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.

We have just decided to update all of our SWMS's & make them electronic. As we currently use iAuditor for field inspection, it made sense to use this format for our SWMS's. We are a small council with only approximately 60 FTE's, so we needed a product that was out of the box but could be modified to suit our needs. This product was the first of 70, I reviewed & it covers everything we need & more importantly can be modified in the field. Great Product!
