Want to engage your workers to be safe when they return to the road post COVID-19? If so, head to the NRSPP website and download any of its 19 free Tool Box Talks.
COVID-19 has disrupted traditional work life in particular the commute and life on the road network. Most workers have been working remotely from home and those who remained on the road have experienced little to no congestion. Equally, every business has come under pressure economically, plus there is uncertainty as to what the new post COVID-19 future will look like.
So why not take this opportunity to reset and create safer behaviour? The vehicle remains the number one risk to workers accounting for 2/3 of workplace fatalities. NRSPP Tool Box Talks provide an opportunity to engage with your workers on any number of road safety issues.
All of these Tool Box Talks are now entirely free. They are an effective and cost-efficient way to communicate information and knowledge about work driving safety. A Tool Box Talk should ideally take approximately 15-20 minutes.
Each Tool Box Talk is evidence-based research and designed to help organisations engage in a conversation with their workforce regarding key risks relating to workplace road safety. They are designed to provide Team Leaders/Managers and Facilitators with the required resources and information to conduct a safety talk to a group of workers about any number of key road-related risks.
Each Tool Box Talk package contains:
- A generic overview of the Tool Box Talk - including a step by step process to assist team leaders/managers and facilitators to lead the discussion
- Aid for promoting the discussion
- Topic background information and fact sheet
- Discussion prompt sheet
- Participant attendance record sheet
- Participant self-assessment sheet
- Discussion review sheet
