Whatever action you are about to take, whether this is driving to work, operating a machine or even making a cup of tea, it doesn’t hurt to take a minute, or five, to assess the situation.
By taking those important moments to weigh up the possible risks and hazards, you are potentially avoiding harm that may be caused to your health, safety, environment, and people around you.
At Sandvik Mining our employees conduct ‘Take 5’ assessments, for example before operating a piece of equipment. We have created a version of the Take Five app for you to try. Let us know how you get on with it and whether you have found it to be a useful tool for the prevention of potential hazards and injuries.
