by , 11 September 2014
Toolbox talks are vital to ensuring your employees know how to take care of themselves at work. They give them the information they need on what dangers they face and how to deal with them.

But if your toolbox talks are old and outdated, your employees may fall asleep, rather than get the vital health and safety information they need.

You need to spice things up and breathe some new life into your old health and safety topics.

Use these four tips and you can do just that...

 

You can upgrade your toolbox talks with these four tips

 
 
Your employees may pay more attention and absorb more information through live demonstration. For example, if you give a toolbox talk on your evacuation procedures, walk your employees through the process.
 
Tip #2: Create open discussions at the end of the talk
 
A great way to ensure your employees are 100% awake and engaged with the talk is to open the floor to a discussion afterward. This way you can answer their questions and ensure everyone understands the topic.
