Monitor and review the control measures

The control measures used, e.g. temporary supports, must be monitored and reviewed to make sure they remain effective. Walls and temporary supports should be inspected for damage and/or movement on a regular basis, typically at the start of each day and after adverse weather conditions. If repairs are required, maintain no-go zones until it is safe to approach.

When reviewing control measures, the SWMS must also be reviewed and revised where necessary.

If problems are found, go back through the risk management steps, review your information and make further decisions about control measures.

Temporary supports must be maintained until the wall is incorporated into the completed structure or alternative support is provided e.g. a cross wall.
