Not filling in forms is the biggest risk

As you sit down with a sheaf of risk assessment sheets, copying out the same risks from the previous job you did, don't take the task lightheartedly. If someone gets hurt and you have failed to perform your allotted CDM tasks, you will be treated as more of a threat to society than Johnny 'Mad Dog' Adair or Jack 'The Hat' McVitie, but you won't get a cool name and you will be more likely to go to prison.
