Safety Work Procedures

We offer a fixed, step-by-step sequence of activities or course of action (with definite start and end points) that must be followed in the same order to correctly perform a task. Proper procedures prevents incidents in work place.

Safe work procedures are based on risk assessments on a specific workplace for specific project tasks. They are developed in consultation with workplace safety and health committee and will be approved by management. Workers are then trained in the safe work procedures so they understand the steps and equipment they must use to work safely.  Supervisors are placed to ensure that safe work procedures are followed.

Safe Work Procedures include the following:

  • Name or description of the work task
  • Date the SWP was created and date it was last reviewed or revised
  • Hazards that may cause harm to a worker
  • Common signs and symptoms of a musculoskeletal injury if the hazards of the job task could lead to this type of injury
  • Equipment / devices, personal protective equipment (PPE), or other safety considerations necessary to perform the task safely
  • Required training and / or relevant documentation needed to perform the task safely
  • Steps to perform the task safely including safe body positions and / or movements as appropriate
  • Indication that workers are to be trained on the SWP and employers must ensure workers follow them
