1 Safe Work Method Statement Disclaimer: Use of Master Builders Generic Safe Work Method Statements The Master Builders Association of Victoria expressly disclaim all and any liability to any person in respect of anything, and of consequence of anything done or omitted to be done by any or such person in reliance, whether wholly or partially on this generic safe work method statement. Rules for the use of Master Builders generic SWMS 1. This generic SWMS is provided as a sample. It is not to be used by a builder or subcontractor for the purpose of managing safety on their projects. It can be used as a template to enable builders and subcontractors to produce their own SWMS. Master Builders have carbon copy pads available for sale to enable builders/subcontractors to produce their own SWMS. 2. Employers intending to use this SWMS as a template for their own SWMS must ensure they consult with their employees, including their Health and Safety Representatives, prior to its introduction. 3. Builders and subcontractors must ensure that their SWMS is relevant to the project at hand. 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. 4. Builders and subcontractors intending to use this sample SWMS as a template 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. 5. The range of generic SWMS provided by Master Builders are not sufficiently broad enough to cover all hazards or risks encountered by builders and subcontractors. It does not cover the full list of requirements for which SWMS are specifically required under the OHS Construction Regulations. It is important that the builder or subcontractor undertake their own hazard identification and risk control process relevant for each particular task. 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 risks in the workplace. Remember : Each Safe Work Method Statement should be site specific. Include all workers 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.

2 NOTE : Work must be performed in accordance with this SWMS. This SWMS must be kept and be available for inspection until the high risk construction work to which this SWMS relates is completed. If the SWMS is revised, all versions should be kept. If a notifiable incident occurs in relation to the high risk construction work in this SWMS, the SWMS must be kept for at least 2 years from the date of the notifiable incident.

Identify the hazards and risks that may cause harm to workers or the public. Personal injury Inadvertent exposure to asbestos contamination Sunburn / skin cancer Cuts / abrasions Dust / foreign object in eyes Slips, trips and falls Poor job planning What are the control measures? Describe what will be done to control the risk. What will you do to make the activity as safe as possible? All workers are to be inducted to the site prior to commencing work. All permits and approvals shall be obtained prior to commencing work. All work to be supervised by a Class A Asbestos removalist. The works supervisor, excavator operator and licensed asbestos removalist shall be issued with, and wear the following PPE P1 dust mask, disposable Tyvex coveralls Owners and operators of vehicles that transport waste asbestos from an industrial or commercial source must hold an Environment Protection Authority (EPA) waste transport permit.

Ensure personnel aware of muster area Poor plant operation Runoff from clearing Trained competent operators on machines Daily pre-starts to be completed Minimise clearing or excavations Shape excess material to direct runoff to manageable areas.

4 Stabilise surfaces promptly Air pollution dust, fumes Install sedimentation basins as required Keep area wet / damp with water cart Spillage of fuels and lubricants Noise disturbance of local residents Plant inspections Avoid refuelling in areas where discharge into waterways is possible. Bunded fuel storage areas as required Operate plant within specified work times only Avoid excessive revving of plant All processes involving use of machinery Adverse impact on natural habitat, damage to sensitive, protected and endangered flora Damage to existing underground services (gas, electrical, water, telecommunications) resulting in electrocution, fire, flooding, public complaints Inspect exhaust systems Identify sensitive fauna and flora likely to be affected and take measures to protect Ensure movement of contaminated soil drawings are on site and have been reviewed. Site meeting with the service provider/s to determine location/s and procedures for dealing with services within the scope of work Assess the exact location of these services by hand or by using a pipe / cable locator Pothole at three (or more if required) locations by hand dig, to locate underground services at each service crossing and at regular spacing along services Mark the route of the asset on the ground and erect warning signs Use a certified spotter at all times. A spotter is a safety observer who is competent for the sole task of observing and warning against the unsafe approach to marked service. Implement NO GO ZONE where the zone is 500mm on each side of the service Removal of asbestos contaminated material with excavator and loading into Inadvertent exposure to asbestos contamination People are in close proximity to the machine or swing radius Where practicable, switch all power off in the area of excavation before excavation begins All activities required to remove asbestos from soil must be done by a Class A licensed asbestos removalist, unless it takes less than one hour to remove the contaminated soil.

Excavator strikes truck vice versa Noise and dust Drivers to stay in their trucks or a safe distance from cab until truck is loaded. Excavator operator to coordinate the movement of trucks, 2 way radio communication to be used A water cart shall be available at all times with the Class A licence holder to spray water over the excavated area / material to ensure that no dust is generated. This will also ensure that material in the truck is moist and will not create dust during transport. Use of excavation equipment near overhead wires Electrocution from striking or arcing of overhead wires All personnel involved in activity to wear p1 dust mask and tyvex coveralls.

Driver to operate at safe speed. Drivers to notify other operators to collect fallen material if required Drivers to adhere to site speed limit and operate/work at speed suitable to site conditions If required, spotter directs trucks to even ground Mark the internal route (aim for one-way flow, minimise reversing) Spotter, common radio channel; eye and hand signal contact Plan proposed access route in advance of delivery Observe for overhead hazards Drivers not to operate with tub up Utilise water cart as necessary. Inspect roads and clean as necessary. Personnel to wear PPE dust mask, ear plugs. Ensure truck tailgates closed securely. Maintain vehicles adequately. Traffic management to be in place Use fencing as necessary to delineate work site from public Seek approval from client if required, for access route The asbestos contaminated soil must be damp before being packaged for transport to prevent the chance of dust and fibres becoming airborne. Ensure the soil is covered over. The contaminated material is to be transported to an approved contaminated material disposal facility. Soil that contains asbestos and no other contaminants must be disposed of as asbestos-containing material using waste code N220. Contact the disposal site to confirm if and when it can accept this type of waste. To find sites licensed to accept waste asbestos, go to Asbestos at
