OFSC releases new fact sheet: Guidance for Producing Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS)

Do you need guidance to develop your Safe Work Method Statements?

The Office of the Federal Safety Commissioner has new support available for builders and civil contractors developing Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS), with the release of a new fact sheet.

Designed in collaboration with Federal Safety Officers, the fact sheet provides simple, straightforward information and is an important resource tool for developing your SWMS.

Under the Australian Government Building and Construction OHS Scheme, SWMS are one of the key pieces of documentation assessed during on-site audits and form the main source of documented Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) guidance for employees.

It is important that employees understand how the process of SWMS work and are actively involved in its development.

For more information please read the factsheet or contact the FSC Assist Line on 1800 652 500.
