Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS)

A Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is a legal document that outlines the high-risk work activities carried out within a workplace, the hazards that may arise from these activities and safety measures put in place to control the risks.

When is a Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) Required?

Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) are required for high risk work activities, as defined in the WHS Regulations, so it’s important that you get it right.

SafetyDocs provides compliant and professional SWMS clearly detailing the most critical work processes, possible hazards and safety controls, our Safe Work Method Statements come complete with Risk Matrix, Hierarchy of Controls, PPE Requirements & Job Steps (including potential hazards & control measures).

As Australia’s leading provider of workplace health and Safety documentation, our Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) have been developed over many years, with feedback from industry safety professionals and regulators, to be class-leading.

With over 400 Safe Work Method Statements in our library, we are sure to have the SWMS you need!

If you require a custom built Safe Work Method Statement for your business, our technical writers can assist you by building a tailor made document to suit your needs.

Our writers are experienced consultants with trade and regulatory backgrounds so are familiar with most equipment, processes, and what is needed to meet government legislation, Australian standards, industry recommendations, and more!

The content of the SWMS can be refined over time and include consultation with workers and other persons conducting a business or undertaking, this step is made easy with our fully customisable, ready to use templates.

Prior to each new activity a Safe Work Method Statement must be reviewed and revised to ensure it applies to the high risk work and the actual site you are working at.

We have created several industry specific VALUE PACKS which contain commonly purchased SWMS, these value packs are suitable for new start-ups, existing and expanding businesses.
