Weekly Toolbox Talk: Carelessness Causes Accidents

Project Safe states quite simply:

Employee Basic Safety Rules, Safe Work Habits: “Careless disregard for the safety of other employees will not be tolerated and is grounds for immediate termination."

“Employees will be expected to regularly inspect and evaluate the work area for hazardous conditions, and to report any changes immediately to the jobsite supervisor or safety advisor.”

Weekly Toolbox Talk: Slips, Trips and Falls (Fall Prevention)

Note to Supervisors: Read and prepare. Your objective is to point out the dangers of the most common – AND PREVENTABLE – causes of serious accidents. Explain practices to help avoid these types of accidents. You should hold this meeting on the floor so you can move around and point out and identify possible slip, trip and fall hazards.

Weekly Toolbox Talk: Tools and Equipment

Tools and equipment include anything from ladders, scaffolds, utility knifes, extension cords, hammer, etc. They seem simple, but tools and equipment can be hazardous on the jobsite or anywhere they are being use. Their greatest hazards are misuse and improper maintenance.
