Task-based risk assessment - Take 5 
All Airport Development Group (ADG) staff, contractors and other stakeholders that conduct work activities with the potential to cause harm or damage on ADG sites must conduct a task-based risk assessment prior to undertaking work. This is a dynamic risk assessment undertaken on the site prior to the work commencing and the recommended method is using a Take 5 risk assessment in conjunction with a safe work method statement (SWMS).

ADG provides a Take 5 form on Snapforms that can be completed online or on your mobile phone using the link or QR code below. When you press the submit button at the end of the form, it will be sent to the ADG Health & Safety Manager via email for review.
