Take 5 Pre-task Risk Assessment Checklist is a safety tool designed to identify potential hazards before beginning a task. It encourages workers to take a few moments to evaluate a task and identify any potential risks. The checklist consists of five simple questions to assess the task and determine if it is safe to proceed. The questions are: What can go wrong, What harm can occur, What is the likelihood of this hazard, What existing controls are in place, and What additional controls are needed. The answers to these questions provide a framework for establishing and maintaining a safe workplace.
