The Pest Control- Termites & Ants Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is a comprehensive document outlining the safety steps, main hazards, risks and controls associated with the high risk activity of working in pest control. This SWMS covers termite and ant eradication using liquid and dust insecticides (containing hazardous substances such as fibronel and formaldehyde) in established premises and soil treatments for new structures.
The effects of pesticides on humans can vary from skin, stomach, eye and lung irritation, to damage to liver, kidneys and nervous system. Symptoms can be mild or severe enough to be fatal and depend on the chemicals used. Main routes of exposure include absorption (skin/eye), inhalation and ingestion (through eating/smoking without washing hands after using).
