TOOL BOX TALK - BENEFITS OF SAFETY

BENEFITS OF SAFETY

OVERVIEW

This talk will cover: how everyone benefits from working on a safe site and the costs of not doing so.

BE SAFE, BE SURE

  • 1. For years the construction industry has had a poor safety record with far too many accidents and too much ill health.
  • 2. Too many accidents are cause by people who knowingly work or behave in an unsafe manner.
  • 3. With care, most accidents are totally and easily preventable.
  • 4. When working, be aware of the safety of others as well as yourself.
  • You have a legal duty to do so.

    WHAT YOU MUST DO

  • 1. Comply with safety training and instruction and with site safety rules; site induction should inform you of the hazards.
  • 2. Avoid the temptation to cut corners to get the job done more quickly; there could be a high price to pay.
  • 3. Be aware of how the job you are dong could affect other people around you.
  • 4. Stay away from work if you know that you are not fit through illness, drink, drugs or for any other reason.
  • 5. Ask your supervisor if you have any doubts on safety issues.
  • 6. Report to your supervisor anyone who you see working or behaving in an unsafe manner, especially horseplay.
  • THE COST OF ACCIDENTS

  • 1. A poor safety record could result in your company being fined and suffering increased insurance premiums.
  • 2. Moneylost in these ways cannot be used elsewhere; the company could be forced out of business.
  • 3. Employees and supervisors who demonstrate or tolerate poor safety practice may find themselves out of work.
  • 4. The personal cost of knowing that you have caused a serious accident,or worse, could last a lifetime.
  • THE BENEFITS OF SAFETY

  • 1. Fewer accidents, resulting in less pain and suffering.
  • 2. Individuals have less time off, avoiding possible loss of income.
  • 3. Less disruption to the job as a whole with less inconvenience to individuals and their companies.
  • 4. Fewer accident investigations, fines and insurance premium increases: more money available for other things.
  • 5. Higher employee morale and a more contented workforce.

Do you have any questions for me?
