What is a Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS)?

Under the current WHS Act it is a legislative requirement that a written Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is produced before any high risk construction work is commenced. The whole purpose of a SWMS is having written proof of safety training used to train workers in the safe use of equipment or work activities.

There are SWMS for all types of industries, different types of machinery and work activities, they are a great way to make sure you are providing a safe workplace for yourself, staff or contractors. If you require a SWMS visit the Safety Culture website where they have a fantastic list of editable SWMS available for purchase online or they can offer custom made SWMS to suite your requirements.

Training Aid Australia provides Certificate IV WHS Course and a Diploma OHS Course.
