We all know we should be doing toolbox talks regularly, but preparing a large number of talks can be difficult when you're not sure what topic to write about. Where should you start?
Well, start with a subject.
Each toolbox talk should be focused around just one topic, so you can get the key points in, keep it relevant, and keep it short.
But what should that subject be?
The good news is, there are loads of health and safety topics you can pick from. Try to think about the types of hazards and risks that are relevant to the work you carry out, and the industry you are in.
