Tool Box Talks are informal safety meetings that focuses on safety topics related to the specific job, such as workplace hazards and safe work practices. Meetings are normally short in duration and are generally conducted at the job site prior to the commencement of a job or work shift.
It is one of the very effective methods to refresh workers’ knowledge, cover last minute safety checks, and exchange information with the experienced workers. Talks are also intended to facilitate health and safety discussions on the job site and promote your organisation’s safety culture. Toolbox talks / meetings are sometimes referred to as work box talks or safety briefings.
Toolbox talks are typically led by a Site Manager, Site Supervisor or Team Leader, but anyone from your company, maybe the company owner can lead a toolbox talk. Sometimes it’s the company’s safety specialist, or HR manager or even a safety consultant that leads these informal meetings.
