This Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is a comprehensive document outlining the safety steps, main hazards, risks and controls associated with heat stress.

Employees can suffer illness from working in excessively hot environments (such as foundries, iron works etc). Heat is not based on air temperature alone, heat sources can come from high temperatures, radiant heat, high humidity, hot objects, or strenuous physical activity.

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.

    This free SWMS was of excellent quality, easy to understand and apply in the field, great for any business who personnel are exposed to the elements of an Australian summer.

    Dealing with Australia's ever changing weather, Heat Stress SWMS is a must have SWMS to all businesses operating outdoors, as well as in conditions where heat is a factor.

    The SMWS gives good information for those looking for more details into Heat management and ways to work around heat scenarios. So easy to work with and make changes to it as you need to keep up the good work.

    This free product was a good one for our clients as it is something that they can develop into their own document without it appearing that we are pushing our company OHS onto them thus allowing them to manage their employees better when hot weather strikes.

  6. Not Bad

    I found it had relevant information but still needed some tweaking, but overall found it reasonably good. Some good nformation and clearly well thought through.

    The Safety Culture template provided a sound basis on which to develop OFSC compliant SWMS with not too much tweaking to bring it up to standard.

    Very informative and helpful in an area that directly affects my business, a small fabrication workshop that regulary sees temperatures above 35 degrees in summer.

    What a great Idea to offer the SWMS - Heat Stress as a give away, especially as our days are getting hotter, and a SWMS that some of us would have overlooked; but very necessary. Kerp up the great work guys...
