Start using Simple WorkSafe ™ Take 5 Assessment Wizard and make creating and tracking a take 5 safety risk assessment quick and easy!

A Take 5 risk assessment is a 5-minute pre-start checklist used to identify health and safety issues and hazards before starting work on a job.

It’s an invaluable tool for a quick but effective “on the job” risk assessment and 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.

The Take 5 differs from the JSA, SWMS or standard risk assessment in that it is not a task by task assessment. In contrast, it is a prestart checklist for the work as a whole. The individual worker’s current situation is of overriding importance.

The Take 5 looks at a range of situations that will differ for each workplace and it’s changing conditions. Even though the tasks to complete the job may be the same each time, local conditions can vary.
For example, a job may be cleaning windows in a high rise building from a BMU.
There will already be a SWMS associated with the job. There is probably a risk assessment. Additionally, there could be some procedures for operating the BMU.
However, when all the workers involved turn up, there is a high wind blowing, and the BMU is damaged.
These situations are not covered by other assessments. They are variable and can differ each time work commences.
Take five risk assessment really comes into its own in this situation.

The Problem With A Take 5 Risk Assessment

The Take 5 is usually carried out using a paper Take 5 risk assessment template or a Take 5 risk assessment booklet.

This means the take 5’s usefulness is limited from a management perspective.


Because the records are easily lost if they are in a booklet or paper format and they are very difficult to manage in terms of the people, jobs, assets and other resources they relate to.

Supervisors are informed and have control

When generating a Take 5 hazard identification record with the Simple WorkSafe Take 5 Risk Assessment Wizard the designated safety coordinator receives an email whenever the Take 5 has issues that need resolving.

The Take 5 is automatically linked to every resource that is affected by the assessment, for example; the job the Take 5 will automatically and permanently be linked to the job it relates to, the worksite and location the job was carried out at, the worker who generated it, any assets (plant, machinery, equipment or tools) that were used and any chemicals that were used.

Occasionally we get a request for changes or additions to Simple WorkSafe. When we believe that the requested change will make the application a better product we will include it. All subscribers will have free access to the additions/ alteration if they are relevant to your current subscription.

Yes. When updates are made to the application they are automatically available to all users of the version that was upgraded free of charge.

On very rare occasions we may need to do routine maintenance on the server, databases or the UI of the application resulting in a brief disruption to the service, however, we will always notify you well before this occurs.

Currently – Yes. Simple WorkSafe is a cloud-based application that needs internet access to communicate with the data held on the server. HOWEVER…There is an upcoming change to this where we will be able to offer offline data processing. This will enable normal use of the application while offline and the data will automatically match once an internet connection becomes available. The release of Offline Data Processing will be announced on our blog and by email with any special instructions.

Mostly yes. We’ve discovered that the application will work with even a very weak internet connection although it may slow up a bit. Usually, even a location with a poor internet service has “hot spots” where the service is better, however, in some remote locations there is no internet service at all. Unfortunately, in this case, the application won’t work until an internet connection can be made. This will change with Offline Data Processing which is coming soon and will be announced in an email to our customers and on our blog.

It takes very little time to have the Simple WorkSafe Risk Assessment wizard up and running. It can be an ongoing process where information is added as needed while using the application.

Not if you follow the guides. The guides give a short but concise explanation for every section of the application.

Absolutely! Simple WorkSafe has a simple but powerful security system. When you subscribe you will be given a username and password that has a “Manager” role. A user with a Manager role can create other users with either a “Supervisor” role or a “Worker” role. A user with a “Supervisor” role can also create an unlimited amount of users with “Worker” roles. These roles determine what a user can see. Only a user with a “Manager” and “Supervisor” role can delete records. There is an extensive explanation of what a user with a Worker role sees in the guides. Simple WorkSafe is not priced on the number of users you have. You can hundreds of users and the subscription does not change.
