Click here to download our December 2018 Safety Meetings. Topics this month include: Cold Weather Risk Factors, Dressing for Cold Weather, EPA Lead Renovator Certification-Who Really Needs It?, Job Safety Analysis, and Safety Orientation-Set Your Safety Standards.
Every month we publish free safety meetings for you to use during your weekly safety meetings. Instructions on how to conduct the meeting are included.
Why do you need to conduct safety meetings?
It is crucial to keep up on safety and safety standards on the job site. Weekly safety meetings will help brief employees on the importance of safety and any risks they may encounter on the work site, as well as build your safety culture.
How long should the safety meeting take?
Reviewing the safety meetings and discussing real situations, should only take about 10 minutes.
When should we schedule the safety meeting?
Typically it is a good idea to schedule the safety meeting on Monday morning before work begins. This has several advantages. First, it gets your crew thinking about safety before they start working for the week. Second, this gives you a great opportunity to review the daily job safety analysis. Lastly, by taking care of the weekly safety meeting on Monday, you are more likely to remember to do it each week.
Will proActive Safety Services conduct the safety meeting for us?
We can definitely conduct the meetings for you. However, we have found over the last ten years that it makes much more sense for your crews to conduct these themselves. Also, we have had several companies confuse a brief safety meeting as actual hazard training. Although we cover the hazards in the safety meeting. Typically most hazards require a formal training course. Also, we feel that the safety meeting process really helps shift accountability for safety responsibility to the crews, and crew leaders.
Are there any resources to help us develop our safety meeting process?
Yes you can access several free tools by accessing osha.gov
