Include all workers doing building and construction activates in the development of the Safe Work Method Statement. All workers should sign off to verify that they understand all the requirements of this Safe Work Method Statement. Employers intending to use the Safe Work Method Statement Building and Construction (Australia) mobile app for their own SWMS must ensure they consult with their employees doing building and construction work, including their Health and Safety Representatives, prior to its introduction. Primary contractors and subcontractors must ensure that their SWMS is relevant to the construction project. Generic SWMS should not be used unless precautions have been taken to ensure that the document adequately addresses the hazards and risks relevant to each particular project. Primary contractors and subcontractors intending to use this app for their own generic SWMS, without making any changes to the detail, must ensure that they adhere to and implement all of the relevant risk controls. It is highly recommended that persons who are responsible for preparing and reviewing SWMS undertake training so as to understand the process of identifying and controlling building and construction risks in the workplace.
A app generates a PDF version of your SWMS which is stored for your safety plan records in your GoCanvas account. 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.”
