  1. Improving Worksite Safety with Toolbox Talks To improve worksite safety to a level where we can say “Toolbox Talks are carried out on my site and I know(understand) it.”

  2. Toolbox Talks (TBTs) • Mandatory for all worksite activities involving hazards • Prior to the start of the activity or whenever there are changes to the original program/situation/changes in sequence of activities • Carried out at the activity location/worksite • Often the last line of defence against injury of Workers and Helpers • Assurance of Workers’ understanding of the work activities and the hazards associated with it.

  3. Think the job through • Set open questions that promote interaction and discussions and verify understanding • Use 3 What’s to assess risk and controls • Use aids e.g. • On-the-job training packs • Use of themes (safety alerts, Life Saving Rules, recent PAKATs, step back 5 X 5) • Job safety analysis (JSA) • Demonstate the correct technique and use of tools

  4. 3 What’s Ask three simple questions…… What can go wrong? What are the possible outcomes of your activity that could cause accidents or injuries What can cause it to go wrong? How can the accidents or injuries happen What can be done to prevent it? Things that can be done to avoid injuries and accidents

  5. On-the-Job Training (OJT) updates • 8 existing packs: • Basic Electrical Safety • Lifting and Hoisting • Manual Handling • Safe Transport to Work • Safe Use of Scaffolding • Slinging • Working at Height • BSP Life Saving Rules • New packs available by Q3 2010 • Excavation • Hot Works • Portable Tools

  6. How to do a quality Toolbox Talk • Do’s: • Do on-site verification (check that job specific TBT items are carried out) • Verify understanding of the activity • If in doubt, stop and clarify • Encourage use of simple english/malay or other languages • Lead by example • Conduct a Re TBT after breaks to re emphasise the hazards and controls identified

  7. How to do a quality Toolbox Talk • Don’ts: • Do not rush • Do not leave without everyone’s understanding • Do not start TBT until everyone involved is present • Do not make it too complex • Do not carry out an HSE briefing/induction

  8. Assessing Toolbox Talks Preferred methods for assessing the effectiveness of a TBT are • To witness the skill of the supervisor and the interaction of work force in an actual TBT • Ensure TBT attendance sheet is signed off as evidence that TBT has taken place
