"Keeping written copies for our accreditations has always been a challenge, especially on longer duration construction projects. Using VISION’s Toolbox Talk module has solved this problem as it’s easy for our admin department to supply evidence for our accreditors and it’s great for our supervisors as it makes delivery easy."
Richard Lowe, Operations Director, Bailey MK Ltd
Put simply, a toolbox talk is a site meeting with employees that usually lasts around 5-10 minutes, intending to provide an overview of a particular health and safety subject, specific to a certain job or project.
A typical toolbox talk will usually cover health and safety areas already known to employees, but will give employers the chance to expand on the subject, and offer a refresher of vital information. Subjects that may be covered include:
A toolbox talk focusing on accident prevention could either be to prevent possible accidents (proactive), or to prevent the reoccurrence of a particular accident (reactive).
A COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) toolbox talk should cover the safe use of substances and will raise awareness of the dangers the substances could pose when not used correctly onsite.
An electrical safety toolbox talk will usually be focussed on the safe use of electrical equipment or electrical tools used onsite, discussing the risks associated, and the correct and proper use.
A gas safety focussed toolbox talk will cover or refresh certain requirements and/or regulations around the safe use of gas appliances, and/or the dangers associated, such as leaks, fires or explosions.
A first aid toolbox talk might be simply to double down on general first aid practices at work, or those specific to the current project, and to make workers aware of the risks associated when first aid mistakes are made.
A toolbox talk targeting noise levels onsite, will usually be to remind workers of the dangers of excessive noise exposure to hearing, and how to keep noise levels at a minimum when carrying out certain jobs.

Regular toolbox talks given at the start of each working day are about keeping particular health and safety practices relevant, and ensuring current rules are followed, and best practices are always used.
