There was some confusion as to what a SWMS was. Some are of the opinion that it is a risk assessment with no mention as to the work stages or procedures. This document cleared the confusion
Waterproofing Safe Work Method Statement
This Waterproofing Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) outlines the safety steps, general hazards and controls associated with the preparation and laying of waterproofing internal wet areas, balconies and rooftops.
Additional controls for High-Risk Construction Work including falling from 2 metres or more and contaminated atmospheres.
If the rooftop does not have an edge barrier (able to support the weight of a person in motion) with a minimum height of 900mm, you will require a ‘working on Roofs SWMS’ that details how the risk of a fall will be reduced or removed.
