A Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) identifies work activities that have a safety risk and outlines the risks. It also describes the precautions to take to avoid or minimise the risks. So, the SWMS is a set of instructions or steps to perform a single task safely. it is based on an identification of hazards associated with the task, and includes assessment of any risks and mechanisms for their control. Working with farm equipment such as chainsaws, tractors and other motorised equipment has a high safety risk.
So following guidelines from the NSW Department of Primary Industries and Workcover NSW Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) have been developed for all the jobs required. These SWMSs were prepared in consultation with those people doing the job.This gives more insight into the various steps involved in the job and the hazards that may be encountered.It also encourages ownership and commitment to the safe working methods by all involved.

Environment & Sustainability
Extensive and careful maintenance of green areas is extremely important for residents and makes local authorities, regions and sports clubs more attractive. Neglect of public areas reinforces negative social effects. Research suggests that there is a direct correlation between badly maintained public spaces and an increase in anti social behaiour. Criminality and fear of criminality are increasing. This results in less use being made of public green areas, leading to deterioration both in health and people's general sense of well being.
At the same time the maintenance of green and other areas is subject to substantial cost pressures like all public and private services. In spite of all this it is still necessary to retain a uniformly attractive professional result for maintenance work. A practicable solution for these conflicting demands is the sustainable maintenance of green areas with mulching mowers.
