Very informative and helpful in an area that directly affects my business, a small fabrication workshop that regulary sees temperatures above 35 degrees in summer.
The Safety Culture template provided a sound basis on which to develop OFSC compliant SWMS with not too much tweaking to bring it up to standard.
Heat Stress Safe Work Method Statement
This Heat Stress Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) covers hazards and controls associated with working in excessively hot environments (such as on roofs, foundries, etc.).
The effect of heat and high humidity on the body is not based on air temperature alone; radiant heat, high humidity, hot objects, or strenuous physical activity may also impact the health of an individual.
Thermal comfort is subjective, but generally, conditions above 26 degrees C and, relative humidity higher than 60 per cent may cause heat stress which may require controls to be initiated.
This SWMS covers High-Risk Construction Work (HRCW) controls related to:
Additional controls are included for Outdoor Work & Remotely &/or Isolated Work.
