This Concrete Foundations (Excavating & Pouring) Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) outlines the safety steps, main hazards and controls associated with the excavation, steel setting and pouring concrete foundations/footings.
This SWMS does not cover working in trenches greater than 1.5 metres deep, click here to view a SWMS for that.
(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.
