Heat Stress SWMS | Safe Work Method Statement

This Heat Stress Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) covers working in excessively hot environments (such as on roofs, foundries, etc.).

The effect of heat and high humidity on the body is not based on air temperature alone; radiant heat, high humidity, hot objects, or strenuous physical activity may also impact the health of an individual. 

Thermal comfort is subjective, but generally, conditions above 26 degrees C and, relative humidity higher than 60 per cent may cause heat stress which may require controls to be initiated. 

Job Steps Covered in Heat Stress SWMS:

(includes potential hazards & control measures)

  1. Planning & Preparation
  2. Training & Capabilities
  3. Acclimatise Workers
  4. Conduct Risk Assessment
  5. Working in Hot Environments
  6. Emergency Response

Heat Stress Safe Work Method Statement Includes:

  • Risk Assessment Matrix
  • Hierarchy of Controls
  • PPE Requirements
  • Emergency Response
  • Emergency Evacuation Procedure

Instant Document Delivery via Email 

FREE Current OHS Legislation & Codes of Practice Reference List (Value $7.95)

For work carried out on a regular basis a generic Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) may be prepared and used for those work activities.

Remember: The content of a Safe Work Method Statement (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 Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) must be reviewed and revised to ensure they apply to the current work activities and the actual site you are working at.

    Thank you for this Heat Stress SWMS.

    Lots of detail.

    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.

    This SMWS gives good information and references for those looking for more details into Heat management and ways to work around heat scenarios

    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.

  10. Thanks...

    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...
