Cladding Installation Method Statement

Workplace 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

SWMS for Cladding

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
