I am thoroughly thoroughly sick of government departments and the gate keepers of government tender processes who are not up to date with who must prepare SWMS and when they must be prepared. You are costing the community billions in wasted effort with NO safety benefit. Do you really want/ need SWMS for contractors who come and water the plants! All State Regulators need to do more work to ensure government processes when engaging contractors accurately reflect the law and best practice in safety. The law was clarified in 2012 (and before). It is appalling that government agencies (which should be exemplar) seem to be the last to get their head around this.
