Take a Time Out Take Five

A Time Out Take Five is a pause in the work that is being undertaken to allow the team to reassess the working environment and any risks or hazards that are present.

Time Out Take Fives can be planned into the works programme or unscheduled and called by any member of the team who has a concern and wants to take a step back from the task in hand.

Time Outs can take as little or as long as needed to resolve any outstanding issues. The overarching objective is that if it can’t be done safely, don’t do it.

The Southern Shield has now created Time Out Take Five posters which Osborne and other supply chain partners are using on their sites.
