Here is some safety information regarding trucks and heavy vehicles – skip bin lifter

Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) are important documents used in the construction and transport industry to ensure that work is carried out safely and in accordance with the relevant regulations and standards. In this case, the SWMS is focused on the use of a skip bin lifter, which is a type of machinery used to lift and empty large waste containers, commonly found on the back of trucks or heavy vehicles.

The following is an example of a SWMS for the use of a skip bin lifter:

  1. Scope This SWMS covers the use of a skip bin lifter mounted on a truck or heavy vehicle. It outlines the steps necessary to safely operate the lifter, including pre-operational checks, lifting and emptying procedures, and post-operational checks.
  2. Responsibilities The following individuals are responsible for ensuring that this SWMS is implemented:
  • The skip bin lifter operator
  • The driver of the truck or heavy vehicle
  • The site supervisor or manager
  1. Pre-Operational Checks Before using the skip bin lifter, the following checks must be carried out:
  • Check that the lifter is securely mounted on the truck or heavy vehicle
  • Check that all hydraulic hoses and fittings are secure and free from leaks
  • Check that the lifting mechanism is functioning properly
  • Check that the skip bin is securely attached to the lifter and free from damage
  • Check that the area around the skip bin is clear of obstacles or hazards
  1. Lifting and Emptying Procedures The following steps must be followed when lifting and emptying a skip bin:
  • Position the truck or heavy vehicle next to the skip bin
  • Ensure that the lifter is properly aligned with the skip bin
  • Engage the lifting mechanism to raise the skip bin off the ground
  • Tilt the skip bin to empty the contents into the truck or heavy vehicle
  • Lower the skip bin back to the ground and disengage the lifting mechanism
  • Secure the skip bin back onto the lifter
  1. Post-Operational Checks After using the skip bin lifter, the following checks must be carried out:
  • Check that the skip bin lifter is securely mounted on the truck or heavy vehicle
  • Check that all hydraulic hoses and fittings are secure and free from leaks
  • Check that the lifting mechanism is functioning properly
  • Check that the skip bin is securely attached to the lifter and free from damage
  • Remove any debris or waste from the immediate area
  1. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) The following PPE must be worn by all individuals involved in the operation of the skip bin lifter:
  • Hard hat
  • High visibility clothing
  • Safety boots
  • Safety gloves
  1. Emergency Procedures In the event of an emergency, the skip bin lifter operator must:
  • Stop the lifting operation immediately
  • Lower the skip bin to the ground
  • Turn off the engine of the truck or heavy vehicle
  • Contact the site supervisor or manager for assistance

This SWMS should be reviewed and updated regularly to ensure that it remains current and relevant to the work being carried out. All individuals involved in the operation of the skip bin lifter should be trained on the contents of this SWMS and understand their roles and responsibilities.

Gary’s Safety Tips

Hey there folks, it’s great to be back with you all. Today, we’re going to dive deep into the world of workplace safety and specifically talk about creating a Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS).

As business owners and leaders, we all have a duty of care to ensure that our workers are safe and healthy while on the job. A SWMS is a critical tool that can help us achieve this goal. It outlines the risks and hazards associated with a particular job and lays out the steps that need to be taken to mitigate those risks.

Let’s start by talking about why creating a SWMS is so important. Firstly, it’s a legal requirement in Australia for certain high-risk construction work. Failure to comply with this requirement can result in significant fines and penalties. But more importantly, a SWMS is essential for ensuring the safety of your workers.

Creating a SWMS involves several steps. The first step is to identify the hazards associated with the task. This could include things like working at height, working with heavy machinery, or working in confined spaces. Once you’ve identified the hazards, you need to assess the risk associated with each one. This involves considering the likelihood of the hazard occurring and the potential consequences if it does.

The next step is to identify control measures that can be put in place to mitigate the risk associated with each hazard. This might include things like providing personal protective equipment (PPE) such as hard hats, safety glasses or harnesses, implementing safety procedures or training, or ensuring that workers have the necessary skills and experience to perform the task safely.

Once you’ve identified the hazards, assessed the risk, and identified control measures, you need to document this information in a clear and concise way. This is where the SWMS comes in. It’s a written document that outlines the hazards, the risks associated with each hazard, and the control measures that will be put in place to mitigate those risks.

It’s important to note that creating a SWMS is not a one-off task. It needs to be reviewed and updated regularly to ensure that it remains relevant and effective. This is particularly important if there are any changes to the job, the workplace, or the workers involved.

So, what are some tips for creating a SWMS? Firstly, involve your workers in the process. They are the ones who are going to be performing the task, so they will have valuable insights into the hazards and risks associated with it. Secondly, keep it simple and concise. Your workers need to be able to understand and follow the SWMS easily, so avoid using technical jargon or complex language. And finally, make sure that the SWMS is easily accessible to all workers who need it. This might mean providing hard copies on-site or ensuring that it’s accessible electronically.

In conclusion, creating a SWMS is an essential part of ensuring the safety of your workers. It involves identifying the hazards associated with a task, assessing the risk, and identifying control measures to mitigate that risk. It’s important to involve your workers in the process, keep it simple and concise, and make sure that it’s easily accessible to all workers who need it. Remember, a safe workplace is a productive workplace, and investing in the safety of your workers is investing in the success of your business.
