The Installation of Ritek Wall Systems Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is a comprehensive document outlining the safety steps for the installation of Ritek XL Wall Systems, installation/placement of reinforcing steel and concrete core filling of the wall system.
This SWMS does not cover installing wall systems in Confined Spaces (for example lift shafts); additional information will be required for this task.
This SWMS involved the following “High Risk Construction Work” (Working on, in or near):
- Falls risks 2m or more
- Powered mobile plant
- Underground Assets
- Overhead Power Lines
- Struck / crushed by falling objects
- Struck / run over by moving vehicles / mobile plant
- Vehicle accident
- Electric shock / electrocution
- Slips, trips & falls
- Musculoskeletal Disorder (MSD) from hazardous manual tasks
- Hearing Loss
- Hazardous Chemicals
Environmental risks may include damage to waterways and water catchment areas due to incorrect disposal of waste materials or from run-off of cement dust during clean up.
This SWMS includes:
This SWMS is ready to use and is not a blank template. Simply add your company details, ABN, and include any site specific details or risks and make it specific to the task at hand. It is then ready for printing and to be incorporated as part of your overall WHS System.
Ensure correct crane or forklift is used for the job.
- Ensure correct rigging equipment
- Inspect crane and lifting equipment before use
- Ensure ground is suitable for crane set up, sufficient room for stabilizers/outriggers.
Do not work in No Go Zones of electrical power lines unless de-energised/isolated and evidence of the continuing isolation of the power supply is obtained.
Ensure unloading area is clear of pedestrians or unauthorised people.Only persons directly involved (including supervisors and engineers) with the lifting of panels should be allowed access to an area where lifting is taking place.
Where reasonably practicable, loads should not be suspended over, or travel over, a person.
If a load is suspended or travelling over a person, an effective back-up slinging system that is designed by an engineer should be used.
The back-up system must be capable of containing the entire suspended wall panel in the event of a failure of the primary slinging system.
Use a Spotter as required if vision is restricted.
