Painting Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) (Australia) Mobile App
The Australian construction industry to ensure health and safety on construction projects and reduce common risks, as well as painting specific risks and dangers require primary contractors and painting subcontractors to complete a Construction SWMS (Safe Work Method Statements) as a control measure and part of their workplace safety plan and job safety analysis.
How does it work?
The Painting Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) (Australia) mobile app is required for high risk construction activities. For painting work done on a regular basis a generic construction SWMS (Safe Work Method Statements) can be created using the app for basic routine painting activities. The content of the Painting Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) mobile app can be refined over time and include consultation with contractors, painting workers and other persons conducting painting work. The GoCanvas App Builder makes it easy to customize the app for specific painting 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 painting 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'.
