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 Street Sweeper 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 street sweeper project as needed, making sure that your Street Sweeper SWMS Template addresses any site specific risks.

The fastest and most cost effective solution would be to purchase a Bluesafe Street Sweeper SWMS Template. However, if you decide to take the route of writing your own street sweeper SWMS.

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

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

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

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

  • Does the street sweeper work outlined in the Street Sweeper SWMS involve a risk of a person falling more than 2 meters?
  • Is the street sweeper work outlined in the Street Sweeper SWMS carried out on or near pressurised gas mains or piping?
  • Is the street sweeper work outlined in the Street Sweeper SWMS carried out on a telecommunication tower?
  • Is the street sweeper work outlined in the Street Sweeper SWMS carried out on or near chemical, fuel or refrigerant lines?
  • Does the street sweeper work outlined in the Street Sweeper SWMS involve demolition of an element of a structure that is load-bearing?
  • Is the street sweeper work outlined in the Street Sweeper SWMS carried out on or near energised electrical installations or services?
  • Does the street sweeper work outlined in the Street Sweeper SWMS involve demolition of an element related to the physical integrity of a structure?

  • Is the street sweeper work outlined in the Street Sweeper SWMS carried out on, in or adjacent to a road, railway, shipping lane or other traffic corridor?
  • Is the street sweeper work outlined in the Street Sweeper SWMS carried out in or near a confined space?
  • Is the street sweeper work outlined in the Street Sweeper SWMS carried out in an area of a workplace where there is any movement of powered mobile plant?
  • Is the street sweeper work outlined in the Street Sweeper SWMS carried out in/near a shaft or trench deeper than 1.5m or tunnel involving use of explosives?
  • Is the street sweeper work outlined in the Street Sweeper SWMS carried out in areas with artificial extremes of temperature?
  • Is the street sweeper work outlined in the Street Sweeper SWMS carried out in or near water or other liquid that involves a risk of drowning?
  • Does the street sweeper work outlined in the Street Sweeper SWMS involve diving work? 

Your Street Sweeper Safe Work Method Statement should also identify any high-risk machinery or equipment in operation near the work site, such as:

Your Street Sweeper SWMS should also list any Personal Protective Equipment such as:

  • Foot Protection - Boots or closed in shoes
  • Hand Protection - Gloves
  • Head Protection - Hard hat or helmet
  • Hearing Protection - Ear plugs or ear muffs
  • Eye Protection - Safety glasses, goggles or face shields

  • Fall Protection - Safety harness, edge protection etc
  • Sun Protection - Sunscreen, hat etc
  • Hair and Jewellery Secured - Hair Net, etc

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

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

  1. All persons involved in the street sweeper work are advised that a revision has been made and how they can access the revised Street Sweeper 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 Street Sweeper SWMS; and,
  3. Workers that will be involved in the street sweeper work are provided with the relevant information and instruction that will assist them to understand and implement the revised Street Sweeper SWMS.

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