Carpentry Framing SWMS
Framing for a Wall
The carpentry framing SWMS assesses the risk following the hazard identification process for framing construction and the subsequent implementation of risk controls to manage risks.
Safe work method statement for wall framing requires control measures be implemented per the hierarchy of risk control when undertaking timber wall frame construction.

Carpentry Framing Safe Work Method Statement
Workplace Health and Safety has conducted a comprehensive hazard analysis for timber wall framing, e.g. how to build a stud wall with control measures developed for identified hazards per the hierarchy of risk controls.
Assess and review safety practices in the workplace to control risk
WHS consultation with employees on health and safety matters to identify potential hazards with how to build wall framing
Risk assessment to identify hazard and risk in the workplace that could result in death or serious injury
Health and safety planning for how to build a stud wall, e.g. minimise risks through the planning process
WHS consultation and participation processes ensure adequate health and safety communication
Workplace environmental hazards, e.g. trenches and excavations, falling from height, overhead power lines
Workplace trip hazards likely to result in slips trips and falls injuries
Implementation of controls for wall framing construction, e.g. isolation of hazards and services in hazardous areas for lifting operation safety
Health and safety at work information and instructions for workers to manage risks
Method to minimise risk when measuring to mark timber wall framing materials to be cut
Tools and equipment used in the stud wall construction of timber framing
Cutting tools to cut timber framing materials, e.g. circular saw, drop saw and the like
Construction setting out for timber wall framing
Electrical hazards and control measures for high voltage power lines, e.g. power line clearance requirements, electrical safety isolation procedures
Electrical spotter to warn persons working in the vicinity of electricity lines, e.g. distance from power lines for cranes
Persons operating a crane are to undertake safe working load calculations per crane load chart against the crane's rated lifting capacity
Lifting slings and chains used to lift prefab wall framing shall be selected and inspected by a dogger per lifting equipment inspection requirements
Crane safety for operating crane when lifting timber wall framing components identifies potential crane lifting hazards, e.g. ground bearing pressure, exclusion zone for lifting operations, lifting operation hazards
Erect wall framing per timber wall framing construction details, e.g. timber wall frame construction methods
Secure prefab wall framing and timber framing components per timber stud wall construction details and timber wall frame design, e.g. fixing timber frame to brick
Wall bracing requirements per building code bracing requirements, e.g. speed bracing
Construction work plan for framing construction shall specify the required fixings and anchors per timber framing code
Hazard controls for drilling materials to anchor stud wall to concrete floor, masonry materials may result in silica dust exposure
Working at height on ladders, scaffolding and elevated work platform when undertaking wall framing construction
Hazardous chemicals used in connection with timber wall framing, e.g. chemical anchors
Hazardous manual tasks in connection with framing carpentry
Personal protective equipment, e.g. PPE goggles, PPE gloves, PPE working at height
Health and safety training for workers, e.g. health and safety training for framing carpentry
Workplace housekeeping incorporating material handling and storage safety
Legislative and regulatory requirements for compliance with WHS legislation, e.g. health and safety regulations, timber framing code and timber framing standards
Monitoring controls, e.g. assessment and review the effectiveness of control measures
Carpentry tasks and activities in connection with wall framing construction
Framing Carpentry SWMS
Carpentry framing SWMS shall assess the risk of construction high-risk activities for wall framing construction.
High-risk work activities that may expose workers to WHS hazards are likely to include but not be limited to:
Plant and equipment used in the work task
Fit, position and secure timber wall framing
Work at height, e.g. fall from heights
Use of hand and power tools
Other timber wall framing hazards
