You know that safety should always come first when it comes to plumbing work, but sometimes it feels like there are just too many things that could go wrong! That’s why we created our extensive range of Plumbing Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) – so you can have peace of mind knowing that everything has been taken care of before anyone starts working on site.

Our carefully selected Plumbing SWMS  outline hazards associated with the most common plumbing activities and provide clear instructions about how these risks can be managed or eliminated altogether.

All SafetyDocs Plumbing SWMS identify the high-risk construction work, specify the hazards and describe the control measures used to control them. When used correctly, plumbing Safe Work method Statements  ensure compliance with health & safety regulations while also providing guidance on how tasks should be carried out.

All SWMS are suitable for use in NSW, QLD, VIC, ACT, TAS, SA, WA and  NZ.

SWMS Template Content

Our Safe Work Method Statements are not blank templates, they contain the most common hazards and controls measures to manage risk.

We can't see what's happening on your site though, it's vitally important you include site-specific hazards, assess the risk, and make our SWMS specific to your task at hand.

Our Safe Work Method Statements set out the work activities in logical sequences; identifies hazards and describes the corresponding control measures.

The content of a SWMS should be regularly reviewed and needs to include consultation with workers and other persons.

If you are changing sites or conducting a new activity, the SWMS content should be checked and amended to suit.

Your Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is then ready for use and as a point of reference at OHS Toolbox Talk meetings.
