This is the 5th module selected from the Safety Delta Learning Library. It will be available all of February.

In the previous modules, we learned about the first phase of the risk management process. We explored the key actions and supporting tools needed to execute the preparation phase properly.

It is now time to learn about the second phase of the risk management process—execution.

The first key action and tool for the execution phase is to conduct toolbox talk at the worksite.

Conduct a good and constructive toolbox talk

Toolbox talk is a dialogue among team members about the safer and more effective execution of a job. It is done at the worksite right before starting the job. The prepared risk assessment is used as a basis for the dialogue among team members.

For toolbox talk to serve its purpose, it is important to ensure we conduct a toolbox talk that is good and constructive.

In this module, you will learn about a good and constructive toolbox talk: its importance and characteristics. And, ultimately, you will gain insights into how to conduct a toolbox talk right.
