Safe Work Procedures

Risk Assessments (RA) and Safe Work Procedures (SWP) must be established for all hazardous tasks.

SWP ensure that those performing a task are aware of the risks involved, and outline how to avoid injury or illness while doing these tasks.

The SWP Template below should be used for all new SWP documents. If you find a SWP in the list below which deals with your risk you may re-use it if:

1. You have checked it thoroughly to ensure that the content is relevant and up to date
2. The layout is the same as in the SWP Template.

If not, you must transfer the information into the template to create an up to date document. When you update an old SWP or create a new one, email the new document to Matthew Day or Michael Joseph so that they can upload it to this intranet page.
