Do you know how to SWM?
Or are you still paddling in the deep end of safety compliance?
A Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is a document that outlines the high-risk construction work activities to be carried out at a workplace; the hazards that may arise from these activities; and the measures to put in place to control the risks identified. It is a documented approach to risk mitigation and may be the difference between working safely and/or causing serious injury to yourself or others.
A process of consultation combined with an assessment of work tasks before you begin work in any construction activity is vital to ensure everyone's safety. Often upon investigation following an incident or accident involving construction, it is identified that either an SWMS was available but not communicated or signed off; or the SWMS was signed off however not communicated.
At AB Phillips, we want to ensure that our clients understand not only their legal, but also their moral health and safety roles and responsibilities.
