Toolbox posters

The term “Toolbox Talk” was originally used as a means to encourage building workers to have a documented regular safety meeting, the best time to do this was considered to be when they stood around the tool box in the morning before starting work so the term Toolbox Talk was born.

Today the Toolbox Talk has been widely accepted as a common means ensuring consultation occurs between workers and is a practical way to raise workers awareness of specific problems on site and help to remind workers that health and safety are an important part of the working day.

These posters have been used as the basis for Toolbox Talks on the Enlarged Cotter Dam project.
