When you need a Safe Work Method Statement…
A Safe Work Method Statement sets out a job’s tasks and activities in logical step order. It outlines the pre-planned method by which job tasks and activities will be carried out.
The SWMS then identifies the hazards and assesses the risk of those hazards for each activity. Next, it demonstrates how control measures are implemented to eliminate or minimise those risks.
It informs everyone involved, from the principal contractor to the workers, what’s needed to carry out the work safely.
Creating and managing the Safe Work Method Statement using traditional methods of paper templates, results in numerous safe work method statement pdf files that are usually stored and forgotten in a filing cabinet somewhere.
They are not reusable and are seldom able to be linked to the jobs, assets and workers they relate to.
The paper safe work method statement template is also time consuming and awkward to create.
What’s needed is an easier, simpler method of creating and managing SWMS.
The Simple WorkSafe Risk SWMS wizard is the perfect tool for safe work method statements.
