Energize Your Safety Meetings: Strategies For Engagin Your Team And Motivating Safe Behavior

Webinar: ID# 1001824
About This Course:
Are you putting your employees to sleep with your safety meetings or toolbox talks? It's time to wake them up-or the consequences could be disastrous.

There's a reason insurance companies promote regular safety talks and why OSHA loves them so much. When properly used, safety meetings can demonstrate your organization's genuine efforts to promote a safe workplace, and can educate workers on appropriate responses to unsafe situations.

The problem is that these routine assemblies often lose steam or lack energy and can easily devolve into a mere legality where all that's required by the supervisor or foreman is a signature of participation.

This approach can turn workers off to safety and thereby increase your organization's risk of serious or potentially deadly injuries. An effective safety meeting must be backed by management support and the appropriate training to equip managers with the soft skills necessary to deliver a compelling presentation.

Preparation and knowledge is always your best approach and is a great way to energize your toolbox talks and safety meetings. Whether your meeting process is stale, in the early stages of development, or has just recently been introduced, taking the time to take a careful look at your program may help you increase the positive contribution and prevent potentially devastating incidents.

Join us when our presenter, a seasoned safety professional who has helped many companies re-energize their safety meeting process, will show you how to evaluate your existing safety meeting process, identify opportunities to add new life, and suggest ways to redesign the program to increase involvement, visibility and benefits.
