A Safe Work Method Statement or SWMS, is a part of a Workplace Safety Plan. It is predominately used in construction. A Safe Work Method Statement SWMS is a document that gives specific instructions on how to safely perform a work related task, and/or operate a piece of plant or equipment. A Safe Work Method Statement SWMS advises employees and contractors on how to perform work related tasks safely.

  • Ensure that a Safe Work Method Statement SWMS is prepared before the proposed work starts
  • Make arrangements to ensure that the high risk construction work is carried out in accordance with the Safe Work Method Statement SWMS
