Weekly Safety Meetings


Ok guys, I know most of you are in the field every day and having to do atleast some, if not all, of your administration task both. Hopefully, this might be one thing I can take off your shoulders.

Would it be of any benefit if I posted our weekly safety meeting topics on here for you all to use in your companies also? I have to write/do them anyway, so it wouldn't be any effort to copy and paste the topics here.

I didn't want to just blast them away without seeing if anyone would benefit from them first.

If enough want them, I'll post them here. If only a few do, pm me and I'll email them out every week.

Re: Weekly Safety Meetings


I think that would be geat! My insurance guy has been after me to keep a log of safety meetings and I have good intentions but just never seem to get around to having them.I mean how much stuff can you talk about before you are just repeating yourself!(and wasting your time) I've always been curious what everyone else talks about.

Re: Weekly Safety Meetings


All commercial jobs here require weekly meetings, We call it tool box time. Every Mon. at 9:00 am. I would like to see your topics! Thank you in advance!
They ask that we keep a safty book with copies of what has been gone over.

Re: Weekly Safety Meetings


RealPurty2,

You are really one of the most benevolent sharers on this board. I would very much appreciate it.

We already discussed this as an every Friday meeting, so it falls right in with our plans. (2 fall related injuries this past autumn((I was going to type this past "fall")), so I know it is desperately needed.

Are you adlibbing the topics or getting them from some "tool-box" talks type of newsletter.

I tried to sign up for the Free NRCA, OSHA fall safety program they just held in the Chicago area, but it was filled the 1st day I called and tried to register.

Re: Weekly Safety Meetings


What source does anybody use to get toolbox talks downloaded for free for our construction related industries, especially fall arrest and protection and ladder safety?

I am interested in seeing your toolbox meeting topics as well as your health and safety information. Would you be willing to e-mail to me? Thank you so much! I have a rough draft of a program I wrote and could really use a bench mark to compare against! Thanks!

Re: Weekly Safety Meetings


It does get hard to not repeat topics.. but quite honestly that's the whole idea of having safety meetings - repetition to get your crews to "hear" you. Safety is on par with quality in many companies, where it's a culture that you have to create.
The topics discussed should also pertain to the particular jobsite. I see the benefit of having the topics posted here in the long run - but immediately the topic would probably not pertain to too many peoples jobsites.
If you want a years worth of safety toolbox meetings you can download a pdf here
http://www.lni.wa.gov/Safety/Topics/...ks/default.asp
Pretty well written for the most part. And I like that they give a place to sign the sheets - documentation, documentation, etc.

Re: Weekly Safety Meetings


Just had ours this morning. This week's topic was heat stroke and proper hydration. To come up with new topics, we sometimes pull out the laptop and run one of the informational videos you can get from OSHA, etc. Kills the time and satisfies the insurance guys.

Re: Weekly Safety Meetings


I think that would be great, we have a meeting once every two weeks during a paid lunch. Recently we have been hit hard with an OSHA violation and a employee getting a stick nail driven into his head...no hard hat....he did it to himself which is even worse...so yeah, saftey information is always helpful...
