This Cleaning (Flood/Storm) Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) outlines the clean-up of premises after floods or storm event, including removal of contaminated items and building materials.
This SWMS covers the following hazards - asbestos, ladder use, biological hazards for humans/animals and the environment (contaminated waste, contaminated water and mud, dead animals) as floodwaters recede.
(includes potential hazards and control measures)
For work carried out on a regular basis a generic SWMS may be prepared and used for those work activities.
Remember: The content of a SWMS should be refined over time and include consultation with workers and other persons conducting a business or undertaking.
Prior to each new activity, each SWMS must be reviewed and revised to ensure they apply to the current work activities and the actual site you are working at.

We recently had major flooding and this SWMS was invaluable thanks to Safety Culture for getting it out to us when we needed it.

I run a restaurant and have recently had a lot of problems with flooding. This SWMS lets us safely clean up and get back on our feet as soon as possible. It's a hard life but that's what you have to live with if you want to be the best Sushi chef in Atlantis. Also this website is amazing! Thanks for a job well done to the awesome guy who works on it!
