What is a Take 5 or JSA
A Take 5 is a pre-start checklist to identify health and safety issues before starting work.
It should take less than 5 minutes to complete.
It helps workers and contractors, particularly those new to a site, reduce exposure to hazards and identify other issues that may affect safety.
Another form of assessing risk for your workers is a JSA (Job Safety Analysis) or JHA (Job Hazard Analysis)
A JSA is typically completed by workers at the job site.
Workers will assess the job or task for hazards that require attention BEFORE commencing work.
A Take 5's or JSA's can be easily generated using Simple WorkSafe wizards.
