Fibre Cement Sheeting SWMS

Fibre Cement Sheet Installation

The fibre cement sheeting SWMS assesses risk following identifying hazards connected with fibre cement sheet installation and implementing risk control measures to manage the risk.

  • Carpentry safe work method statements require control measures be implemented per hierarchy of risk controls when installing fibre cement sheet cladding.

Fibre Cement Sheet Cladding Method Statement

Workplace Health and Safety has conducted a comprehensive hazard analysis for fibre cement sheet cladding, e.g. eave sheet installation with risk controls developed for identified hazards per risk controls hierarchy.

  • Assess and review WHS practices in the workplace to control risk

  • WHS consultation to identify potential hazards with how to install fibre cement sheet cladding

  • Risk assessment to identify workplace safety hazards and risks likely to result in serious bodily injury or death

  • Health and safety planning for fibre cement sheet installation, 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 heights

  • Trip hazards in the workplace likely to result in slips trips and falls injuries

  • Implementation of controls for fibre cement sheet installation, e.g. isolation of hazards and services for electrical equipment in hazardous areas

  • Safety instructions for workers to manage risks

  • Method to minimise risk when measuring to mark fibre cement sheet cladding to be cut

  • Tools and equipment used to install and fix fibre cement sheet, e.g. fibre cement sheet cladding

  • Cutting tools to cut fibre cement sheet materials, e.g. fibre cement shears, fibre cement sheet cutter, HEPA equipped circular, wet saw

  • Hazard controls for cutting fibre cement sheet materials and cleaning of slurry residue, fibre cement materials may result in silica dust exposure

  • Fit fibre cement sheet cladding per construction drawings

  • Secure fibre cement sheet cladding per building code of practice, fixings per construction drawings and specifications

  • Working at height on ladders, mobile scaffold and elevated work platforms when undertaking fibre cement sheet installation

  • 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 fibre cement sheet installation, e.g. liquid nails

  • Hazardous manual tasks in connection with the installation of fibre cement sheet cladding

  • Personal protective equipment, e.g. goggles for eye protection, PPE working at height

  • Health and safety training for workers, e.g. carpentry training for the installation of fibre cement sheet materials

  • Housekeeping at workplace per housekeeping policy and procedures

  • Legislative and regulatory requirements for compliance with WHS legislation, e.g. health and safety construction regulations, code of practice construction work and workplace standards

  • Monitoring controls, e.g. assessment and review the effectiveness of control measures

  • Carpentry tasks and activities in connection with the fibre cement sheet installation

SWMS Fibre Cement Sheeting

SWMS Fibre cement sheeting shall assess the risk of construction high-risk activities for installing fibre cement sheet cladding.

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 fibre cement sheet materials
