The simple Toolbox Talks checklist to make sure you're covering all the bases
They are a way for you to give your employees safety information about their working environment. And involve them in the safety management at your workplace.
Running effective Toolbox Talks can be a challenge. And because you must have them regularly (at least once a week), makes it something you can't ignore.
To help make it easier, we've created a Toolbox Talks checklist. This will help you conduct simple, effective Toolbox Talks.
Let's have a look at your Toolbox Talks checklist
Your Toolbox Talks checklist
Choose a safety topic
- Choose a topic that's relevant to the work your employees are doing, such as 'Working at heights'. The topic can also be topical such as 'HIV in the workplace'. A lot of trainers get stuck here, so to avoid that pitfall, click here.
- Investigate the workplace for hazards relating to the topic.
- Read over the material you plan to cover.
- Make sure you're familiar with any regulations, guidelines and company rules relating to the day's topic.
- Review reports of recent accidents on the site, including 'near misses'.
Actively involve employees in the meeting
Remember, it takes more than a good Toolbox Talks session to create a safer work environment. Encourage safe work practices, and set an excellent safety example!
