Working Around The Public Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS)



This Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is specifically designed for activities involved in working around the public, a key aspect of project management in areas accessible to or nearby the general population. Our comprehensive SWMS template provides a framework for businesses to document and manage the typical hazards and safety controls associated with working in public spaces. It is ideal for construction companies, event organisers, and any business operations that intersect with public areas, allowing for customisation and seamless integration into existing Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) management systems.


Hazards & Control Measures Covered:

  • Secure Site Setup: Managing unforeseen public interaction and property damage with barriers, signage, and clear exit routes.
  • Noise Exposure: Implementing noise control measures and ensuring public safety with appropriate barriers.
  • Public Access Management: Use of barricades and signage to manage and restrict site access effectively.
  • Emergency Preparedness: Detailed action plans for responding to injuries, incidents, and emergency conditions.
  • Equipment and Operation Safety: Ensuring that all equipment is correctly maintained and operated within safety guidelines.


Additional Resources:

Included with this SWMS is a free copy of our Legislation & Codes of Practice Reference List.


Key Features:

This SWMS template for Working Around The Public is an essential, easy-to-use tool designed to help improve the documentation of WHS systems in a manner that is both quick to implement and easy to customise.
