This Excavation & Working in Trenches Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) provides guidance in regards to excavating & working in trenches greater than 1.5m deep.
This SWMS includes working adjacent to mobile plant, shoring and trench shields, hazardous atmospheres and contaminated ground, contact with overhead electrical services falls and general safety items such as PPE.
(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.
