Require a take 5 checklist or take 5 safety book template to identify health issues and address hazards in the work site or workplace?
A take 5 safety book will help to make your workplace a safer environment by making it simple to identify hazards in the workplace, keeping every staff member free from harm and helping to manage safety.
Hazards in the workplace can be anything. They come in a number of different forms. Whether these are operating heavy machinery, large equipment, faulty moving parts, faulty products, faulty energy sources, bad weather conditions, hazardous substances, electricity or confined spaces, all these pose danger and potential health risks to your employees and their own safety.
That is why protecting your workers – from the top management and supervisor team down to the lowest level – against different types of potential risks and inherent hazards should be a key priority in your workplace. While accidents and new hazards are inevitable, these can be made easier to identify and mitigate by carrying out an effective risk assessment process and having the right tools and a safety management system in place to manage identified risks. "Take 5, Stay Alive".
