Safe Work Method Statements

OHSDocs has a range of Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) available. (Also known as Job Safety Analysis and Safe Work Procedures).  These SWMS are split up into state specific sections.  Each state in Australia has different OHS laws and regulations backed up by state specific codes of practice.  We at OHSDocs feel that for true OHS compliance, each SWMS we create must be tailored specifically to your states laws and regulations.

Beware of companies trying to sell you general non-specific Safe Work Method Statements.
