This Safe Work Procedure (SWP) for a Excavator has been written to cover generic use and should be customised to suit your business.
Why have Safe Work Procedures (SWP)? Some work tasks/equipment carry risks. The term Safe Work Procedure (SWP) is predominantly used as a risk management tool. SWP are used where lack of instruction could result in injury or illness. SWP’s briefly document the risks associated with a work task/equipment and list the appropriate risk control measures into a sequence of steps for doing the task safely. SWP’s are a useful tool when training and supervising your workers.
Note – these have been developed as a template for business to purchase and customise to suit their business.
