Method Statement for Wall Cladding
Workplace Health and Safety has conducted a comprehensive hazard analysis for installing walling materials, e.g. wall cladding with risk controls developed for identified hazards per the hierarchy of risk control measures.
Assess and review WHS practices in the workplace to control risks
WHS consultation for the identification of hazards with the installation of walling materials
Risk assessment to identify workplace hazards and risks having the potential to cause death and serious injury
Health and safety planning for installing walling materials, e.g. minimise risks through the planning process
WHS consultation and participation processes ensure adequate health and safety communication
Workplace environmental hazards, e.g. working in hazardous areas, working at height
Slip trips and falls in the workplace having the potential to cause death or serious injury
Implementation of controls for installing walling materials, e.g. isolation of hazards and services for electrical equipment in hazardous areas
Health and safety at work information and instructions for workers to manage risks
Method to minimise risk when measuring and marking walling materials to be cut
Tools and equipment used to install and fix walling materials, e.g. wall cladding
Cutting tools to cut walling materials, e.g. siding
Erect and install walling materials per construction drawings, e.g. wall cladding
Secure walling materials per building code of practice, fixings per construction drawings and specifications
Working at height on ladders, mobile scaffold and elevated work platforms when undertaking the installation of walling materials
Contact with energised electrical equipment resulting in electrocution death, electrical shock and potential injuries from electrical shock
Electrical spotter to warn persons working in the vicinity of energised electrical equipment, e.g. electrical hazards
Hazardous chemicals used in connection with installing walling materials, e.g. chemical anchors, liquid nails
Hazardous manual tasks in connection with the erection and installation of walling materials
Personal protective equipment, e.g. eye protection PPE, work at height safety equipment, hearing protection PPE
Health and safety training for workers, e.g. carpentry training for the erection and installation of walling materials
Housekeeping at workplaceper housekeeping policy and procedures
Legislative and regulatory requirements for compliance with WHS legislation, e.g. construction health and safety regulations, construction work code of practice and WHS standards
Monitoring controls, e.g. assessment and review the effectiveness of control measures
Carpentry tasks and activities in connection with the erection and installation of walling materials
Cladding Safe Work Method Statement
Cladding SWMS shall assess the risk of construction high-risk activities for installing wall cladding and other walling materials.
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 walling materials
Working at height, e.g. fall from height
Use of hand and power tools
Chemical hazards when using chemical anchors
Working near live electrical apparatus per electrical live-work policy and procedure
Other wall cladding hazards
