Weekly Toolbox Talk — Week 9

 

Working safely is a team effort. You look out for other workers and they look out for you. Taking responsibility for others is especially important when it comes to new and young workers. They need you to keep an eye on them and remind them how to work safely.

Think about your workplace from the new worker's point of view for a moment. Remember your own first day on the job. You'll see a busy place full of strange equipment, unfamiliar tools and complicated tasks.

Everyone else seems to know what they are doing. More than anything, you just want to fit in with the rest of the crew and look like you know what you are doing.
