What is a Safe Work Method Statement?

A SWMS is a document that outlines the high-risk construction work activities that will be performed at a workplace, the hazards that will be present as a result of these activities, and the controls that will be implemented to mitigate the risks.

A single SWMS can be utilised for numerous high-risk construction work activities, such as employing powered mobile plant, working at heights of more than 2 metres, and working near to a road that is used by traffic other than pedestrians.

A SWMS is an administrative control that is used to support higher-order controls, such as engineering controls, that are designed to remove or reduce hazards to health and safety.

A SWMS differs from other documentation such as a Job Safety Analysis or a Safe Operating Procedure in that it focuses on specific jobs or processes. A SWMS isn't meant to be a procedure; rather, it's a tool for supervisors and workers to check and monitor the workplace control measures. For high-risk work activities, a PCBU (Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking)  must prepare a Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) or check that one has been prepared before starting work. It is important to note that before any work process has started, a SWMS must be prepared.

A PCBU, on the other hand, also must manage health and safety hazards by eliminating or reducing them as much as possible. Before beginning any work on a project, the principal contractor must also obtain a copy of the SWMS.

What information does a Safe Work Method Statement need to contain?

A Safe Work Method Statement should identify high-risk work and any specify hazards related to high-risk construction work as well as any health and safety risks. The SWMS should describe the risk-control measures to be implemented, monitored, and reviewed and also should describe how the risk-control measures will be effective at reducing or eliminating the risk, and how they will be implemented, monitored, and reviewed.

A Safe Work Method Statement should be concise and focus on outlining the specific risks identified for the high-risk work to be performed, as well as the control measures to be implemented to ensure that the work is completed safely.

A long and overly complex Safe Work Method Statement which could be difficult to comprehend, implement and monitor or review may be confusing for workers to mentally digest and therefore is not ideal in helping to reduce or eliminate risks in the workplace. It is imperative that workers, and especially those who do not speak English, are able to understand the Safe Work Method Statement. Consider having pictures or diagrams added to the SWMS as a more effective way of presenting information contained within the SWMS.

The SWMS should also contain other regulatory requirements to protect health and safety of all personnel, such as controlling noise exposure and manual job risks. Also, keep in mind that evidence of a completed risk assessment may be required by the regulator or for auditing reasons if the Safe Work Method Statement is based on a workplace-specific risk assessment.

Who's Responsible for creating the Safe Work Method Statement?

In collaboration with workers who will be directly engaged in the activity, the person responsible for carrying out the work is usually best equipped to prepare the SWMS document. In most cases, this means that a Safe Work Method Statement is created by the builder for his or her employees, or by the subcontractor for their employees.

To establish who is in the best position to prepare the Safe Work Method Statement, the principle contractor, builder, and/or subcontractors should decide who will take responsibility for the SWMS.

It's also a requirement that all managers, contractors, supervisors, and workers be involved in the creation of a Safe Work Method Statement. Workers must be consulted so that they understand the SWMS in depth and what they must do to establish and maintain risks and implement control measures to manage the risk. Sharing information and utilising workers' knowledge and experience may also aid in ensuring that the task is completed in accordance with the SWMS.

If your workplace has a Health and Safety Representative, they should also be contacted while creating a Safe Work Method Statement.

What does the principal contractor's responsibility entail?

Before beginning work, a principal contractor must take all reasonable steps to obtain a SWMS from any contractor performing high-risk work. If no SWMS exists, the principal contractor must arrange for one to be created, for example by the contractor or subcontractor.

A general contractor should establish plans to ensure that high-risk work is carried out safely and in compliance with the Safe Work Method Statement. This can be done by keeping an eye on how the SWMS is being implemented on the ground.

The principal contractors' WHS management plan must also include detailed arrangements for collecting, assessing, monitoring, and reviewing the SWMS, according to the WHS Regulations.

How to Write a Safe Work Method Statement

If you're looking to write your own Dynamometer Chassis Safe Work Method Statement, the first step is to create the document as a Safe Work Method Statement Template. This way, you can use the same SWMS Template and then adjust the document for each different dynamometer chassis project as needed, making sure that your Dynamometer Chassis SWMS Template addresses any site specific risks. 

The fastest and most cost effective solution would be to purchase a Bluesafe Dynamometer Chassis SWMS Template. However, if you decide to take the route of writing your own dynamometer chassis SWMS.

There are some fundamental requirements and information which you may want to consider adding to your Dynamometer Chassis SWMS such as: 

  • Details of the person(s) responsible for making sure implementation, monitoring and compliance of the Dynamometer Chassis SWMS as well as any reviews and modifications.
  • Any information detailing safety meetings or toolbox talks in relation to dynamometer chassis work, scheduled in accordance with legislative requirements to first identify any site hazards where the dynamometer chassis work is being conducted, secondly, communicate the risks and hazards and then take steps to eliminate or control each hazard in relation to the dynamometer chassis work being done.
  • Any changes added to the Dynamometer Chassis SWMS after an incident or a near miss. 

Note: The Dynamometer Chassis SWMS must be kept and be available for inspection at least until the dynamometer chassis work is completed. Where the Dynamometer Chassis SWMS is revised, all versions of the SWMS Template should be kept. If a notifiable incident occurs in relation to the Dynamometer Chassis Safe Work Method Statement, the Dynamometer Chassis SWMS must be kept for a minimum of two years from the date of the incident.

Your Dynamometer Chassis Safe Work Method Statement Template should list any high risk construction work, such as:

  • Does the dynamometer chassis work outlined in the Dynamometer Chassis SWMS involve a risk of a person falling more than 2 meters?
  • Is the dynamometer chassis work outlined in the Dynamometer Chassis SWMS carried out on or near pressurised gas mains or piping?

The Dynamometer Chassis SWMS must be reviewed continually to ensure it remains effective and relevant. The Dynamometer Chassis SWMS must be reviewed (and revised if necessary) if relevant control measures in relation to dynamometer chassis work are revised. The review process should be carried out in consultation with workers (including contractors and subcontractors) who maybe affected by the Dynamometer Chassis and their health and safety representatives who represented that work group at the workplace.

When the Dynamometer Chassis SWMS has been revised, the person conducting a business or undertaking must ensure:  

  1. All persons involved in the dynamometer chassis work are advised that a revision has been made and how they can access the revised Dynamometer Chassis SWMS;
  2. Persons who will need to change a work procedure or system as a result of the review are advised of the changes in a way that will enable them to implement their duties consistently with the revised Dynamometer Chassis SWMS; and,
  3. Workers that will be involved in the dynamometer chassis work are provided with the relevant information and instruction that will assist them to understand and implement the revised Dynamometer Chassis SWMS.

When preparing your Dynamometer Chassis SWMS, here are some topics you might want to also include to ensure you have covered as many risks and hazards as possible.

  • Use sound suppressant on walls and ceiling to reduce effect of reflected sound and reverberation during testing treat concrete or brickwalls to reduce noise levels.
  • Make sure adequate space is available to safely manoeuvre vehicles on and off test unit keep vehicle manoeuvring space away from obstructions.
  • Idler rollers will move if stepped on avoid stepping on rollers.
  • Use different colours on body of dynamometer or use tape around to identify hazard zones.
  • Make sure that all surfaces are clean and free of oil and water after each use.
  • Keep hoses and leads away from floor when not in use.
  • Remove hold-downs after use, clean and store correctly provide suitable storage for parts.
  • Highlight hold-down attachment points on floor with non-slip paint, etc.
  • Provide effective exhaust extraction system to remove exhaust fumes directly from vehicle system to outside atmosphere make sure that exhaust does not contaminate other work areas.
  • Inspect all parts of the dynamometer make sure that rollers operate freely.
  • Never use faulty equipment.
  • Inspect exhaust extractor system for leaks or damage replace or rectify damaged, worn or distorted parts.
  • Make sure that extractor fan (if fitted) is operating correctly.
  • Inspect hold-down points on floor for evidence of movement or stress.
  • Inspect hold-down straps and chains for stretching, wear or damage.
  • Inspect dynamometer leads and controls for damage, and for proper operation.
  • Make sure that all connections and controls are in good condition.
  • Locate vehicle so that driving wheels are evenly placed on rollers, if necessary, realign vehicle to make sure that both driving wheels are properly located on rollers.
  • Check that proposed attachment points on vehicle are suitable for load.
  • Tie vehicle down using suitable securing straps or chains to prevent movement of vehicle.
  • Avoid twisting of hold-downs check that all tie downs are tightened to prevent movement. Make sure that extractor is on before starting engine test.
  • Note: Chains may fail if subjected to high loading when twisted.
  • Make sure that exhaust extractor is securely fitted to the vehicle tailpipe.
  • Perform low-speed check of all parts of set up prior to conducting test.
  • Keep all persons not directly involved in the test away from the work area keep unauthorised persons well away from operating area.
  • Area in-front of and behind vehicle must be designated NO-GO zones when testing is being carried out clearly define NO-GO zone.
  • Monitor sound levels generated by vehicle and dynamometer in operation wear hearing protection if noise levels are above 85 dB (A).
  • Maintain means of communication between all persons involved in the test.
  • Before moving vehicle, loosen and remove hold-downs from vehicle and attachments clean parts and store correctly.
  • Disconnect all leads, and remove exhaust extractor from vehicle tailpipe be careful when handling exhaust systems as they may be hot.
  • Make sure all persons are in safe position before driving vehicle off dynamometer keep all persons clear.
