Where can I download a SWMS (Safe Work Method Statement)?

You can download a SWMS and find more clarification on Safe Work Method Statements from the Safework Australia SWMS Information and Template document.

Working at heights is considered high risk and a SWMS is always required to be prepared before any work of this type is carried out.

Completing a SWMS will require the following information:

  • The details of the construction work that is considered high risk
  • The health and safety hazards relating to the work
  • The control measures that need to be implemented to minimise or remove the risks
  • How the control measures will be actioned?
  • When will they be monitored and reviewed?
