If you forget to mark this date on your calendar, you could be guilty of health and safety non-compliance

by , 30 October 2014
Health and safety is an ongoing process. There are always things you must do to keep it on track.

Since you know this, you've probably already diarised your next risk assessment.

But that's not the only date you need to put on your calendar...

 

Have you forgotten to put this important date on your calendar?

 
Toolbox talks are an extension of your health and safety plan. They ensure you constantly keep your employees up-to-date on important health and safety issues and how to deal with them.
 
You must put toolbox talks on your calendar or your health and safety training might be ineffective. It also means you haven't completely complied with the OHS Act's rules and instructions.
 
But toolbox talks shouldn't just appear on your calendar once.
 
Here's how often you need to do them.

Here's when you should do toolbox talks in your company

 
Toolbox talks should be a regular thing in your company, depending on what work your employees do. You should do these at least once a month or whenever a new health and safety issue arises. 
 
Create a toolbox talk programme (with the help of the Toolbox Talk Kit) to plan all the topics you want to do talks on. Then plan your toolbox talk dates to ensure you cover the different topics you have. 
 
Put the dates of all your toolbox talks on your calendar to ensure you never forget to do one.
