Other OHS documentation may include registers, training matrix’s or Safety (OHS) Management Plans.

Safety Resources Australia can assist your business with the preparation of any of your required documentation in order to enable you to concentrate on your core business activity.


Under a range of OHS and WHS laws, certain High Risk work tasks, require a Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS).

Whilst you can purchase generic SWMS online, they are generally only suitable for a single task, rather than the whole job.  As such, you end up needing 5 or 6 SWMS to do one job.

A better way is to have Safety Resources Australia prepare an SWMS for the whole job. e.g. remove an old and install a new partition wall in a building. By doing so you avoid having one for demolition, another for rubbish removal, one for electric tool use, one for wall installation and finally one for painting.

Let us help you with a overall job related SWMS.


As detailed previously, certain OHS and WHS laws require an SWMS for High Risk work tasks. Furthermore, some companies require sub-contractors to prepare an SWMS for work that they are going to do for them.
