The Excavation and grading Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) (Australia) mobile app is required for high risk construction activities. For excavation and grading work done on a regular basis a generic construction SWMS (Safe Work Method Statements) can be created using the app for basic routine excavation and grading activities. The content of the Excavation and grading Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) mobile app can be refined over time and include consultation with contractors, excavation and grading workers and other persons conducting excavation and grading work. The GoCanvas App Builder makes it easy to customize the app for specific excavation and grading work related hazards and safety risks. Remember: Prior to each new construction project, the SWMS must be reviewed and revised by the principal contractor and the excavation and grading subcontractor to confirm it applies to any high-risk construction work and the actual site you are working at. Any persons conducting a business or undertaking in relation to the 18-high risk construction work activities must complete a safe work method statement (SWMS). A SWMS is not required for 'work of a minor nature'.

This app is specific to excavation and grading but the GoCanvas store has Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) for numerous construction industries.

Don't take our word for it...

“I’m not a tech guy and I was able to pick this thing up in probably an hour, and actually start to build apps. I’ve done them over lunch when I’ve gotten frustrated with a process that didn’t exist in our company. So for non tech people who’ve got a problem, the support here is awesome and I’d recommend it to anybody, not just in our industry.”
