Accredited Service Providers need SWMS, too!
If you’re an accredited service provider (ASP), you may have heard of SWMS before. They are, in fact, critical documents to meeting your regulatory requirements with the government, and for that reason it’s important that you pay close attention to them. NECA has a proven track record in proving top quality SWMS to those in the ASP industry, saving them a great deal of time and money in the process.
Why SWMS are so important
Australian WHS regulations defines some 18 activities which are classified as “high risk” for those working on them. Whether it’s risk of falls and drowning, exposure to harmful substances, or working in a flammable environment, these activities need employers and employees to work with an additional level of caution (for the full list of what is defined as high risk, click here)
SWMS are a step designed to help employers provide their employees with a safe environment to work. They are a document which, in basic terms, lists out all the areas of risk, and demonstrates what the employer and employees are doing to mitigate against those risks. If a workplace environment has any high risk activities involved in it, then a SWMS is a legally mandated document.
Each environment and new set of activities requires a new SWMS, as each environment and activity is different in nature. It’s important to be thorough and comprehensive with these, and then make sure the work environment takes the mitigation efforts seriously.
How to draw a SWMS up
You can draw your own SWMS, however, this is an inefficient and costly endeavour. As with all documents in the legal and regulatory space, precise language is critical and any details missed can become very costly in the event that they become legally challenged.
NECA Accredited Service Provider SWMS are a big cost saving for any organisation that needs a Level 2 electrical SWMS. They are written by Owen Leslie, an expert with electrical trade qualifications and a diploma in WHS. Leslie has also received a WHS Champion award from the Hunter Safety Awards. Leslie’s SWMS have been written in close consultation with all interest groups, including the safety regulator, electrical network distributors, construction companies and electrical contractors.
Every work environment is different, and you’ll need to ensure that the NECA SWMS does fully cover your activities (see disclaimer, below), however, as a baseline, it will be an invaluable resource in giving you peace of mind that your organisation and work processes are covered by best-in-breed safety documents.
How to access NECA SWMS for electricians
Accessing the right documents that you need could not be easier. Simply log on to the folder creator tool, which will allow you to select what documents you want from the NECASafe library. Then attach your logo and a few other details. That’s it! From there we will then quote, print and deliver the folders. These safety folders can be used for employees, vehicles or site safety folders. If necessary, you can even attach your own documentation to be included in the folder – which is important if your work project involves unique conditions not covered by the template SWMS.
