Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) are a formal document that requires the work or task or job to be undertaken to be presented in a logical and safe sequence, through the process of identifying, assessing and controlling hazards and risks.

Note: These SWMS are examples and you need to ensure that you develop company/site SWMS with appropriate steps and specific hazard/risk controls relevant to your operations and tasks.
