The best way to do that is by using the Safe Work Method Statement Working at Heights Mobile App.
With this app on your iPhone, iPad or Android device, you will have the tool you need - right in the palm of your hand -to create the SWMS and to protect the health and safety of your construction team undertaking a high-risk task.
A SWMS is a safety planning tool that identifies potential hazards and risks at a construction site, and documents the control measures and safety policy to manage those risks. When working at heights, it is especially important to communicate the need for protective equipment, the danger of a fall from ladders or work platforms and that all safety procedures are closely followed.
The SWMS should describe to workers in clear terms how risks from the work will be effectively controlled to enable the work to be done safely. Employers and self-employed persons are required to prepare a SWMS before commencing high-risk construction work, if that work poses a risk to the health or safety of any person including other persons on site or the public.
Your SWMS will be saved safely and securely to the GoCanvas Cloud for ready access anytime and anywhere. Create a PDF and email the SWMS report to workers and other appropriate parties.
GoCanvas offers Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) for specific construction areas.

“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.”
