Monday Morning Toolbox Talks!

Good morning Safety Coordinators:  Today is Monday which means it's that time of the week to perform a weekly job site safety inspection and to perform a meaningful toolbox talk with our employees around 9:45am.  Let's start the week off on the right foot for the benefit of our employees.  Some time between 7:00am and 9:00am this morning, all Safety Coordinators should grab a safety inspection form from your Safety Coordinator manual and walk your job site and look for hazards.  Any hazards found should be documented on your safety inspection form and comments about the hazard and plan to protect our employees from the hazard should be documented.  Then after your morning break, at 9:45am, the Safety Coordinators should gather the crew and perform a toolbox talk that is pertinent and meaningful to the tasks being performed, the equipment being used or to something that pertains to safety at your job site.  Then after the toolbox talk has been completed, have all the employees at the project that participated in the toolbox talk sign the toolbox talk roster.  Finally, the Safety Coordinator should advise the employees of any hazards found during the walk around safety inspection and what our plan is to abate the hazard and to protect the employees from the hazard.  If a hazard is identified that cannot be abated immediately, you should then contact our Safety Director, Peter Graham, to discuss it so we can implement a plan to abate the hazard.  After the above is completed, please do your best to get the toolbox talk sign in roster & safety inspection form turned in to our Safety Department no later than Friday, 2/15/13.  Lets make it a goal to get 100% of the toolbox talks rosters and safety inspection forms turned in by Friday. If you have any questions, please contact our Safety Director, Peter at (847) 417-1689 or you can e-mail him at

Thank you for helping us to prevent injuries to our employees.

Have a Safe Day!
