There is often uncertainty over when a Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is required and subsequent company processes can be unnecessarily complicated. You can avoid the guess-work and save time by using the NECA Safe Digital App to complete your Risk Assessments.
Simply answer the questions and the Risk Assessment tool will determine whether or not a SWMS is required and then prompt you to provide the relevant details and documents.
Click here to view the step-by-step instructions for using this tool.
To put it simply - there are 19 High Risk Construction Work Activities that require a SWMS. These activities have been loaded into the NECA Safe Digital App.
If you select one of the High Risk Construction Work Activities when using the Risk Assessment tool, you will be prompted to provide a SWMS. You can upload your SWMS in the administrative console before you go on site. Click here for instructions.
If your work does not involve any High Risk Construction Work Activities, then you will not need to provide a SWMS and can continue to complete a standard Risk Assessment via the tool. Easy!
*If you need help preparing SWMS for your business, we have a suite of generic SWMS available for purchase - phone (08) 6241 6100 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your business involves a larger team with a Supervisor, they can review and sign-off on the Risk Assessment via the App.
If you have additional attendees on site that are not users of the App (e.g. apprentices, sub-contractors, labour-hire), their attendance can be recorded via the tool.
You can close out of a Risk-Assessment submission at any time and your work will be saved. Simply select the 'X' in the top right corner of the screen and your draft submission will be saved on the home page of the tool, ready for you to reopen and continue with your submission at any time.
It's time to streamline safety in your business and be confident that you are doing the right thing when it comes to SWMS.
