SAFETY AWARENESS IS ONLY PART OF THE SOLUTION
Dangerous distractions naturally abound on construction sites. Accidents can happen when a worker isn’t paying attention, isn’t properly trained in the use of a particular tool, or isn’t made aware of the ways the tool or work situation might cause an injury. A popular way to make sure everyone on the jobsite is thinking safety is the toolbox safety talk, where the job foreman calls attention to the specific safety hazards that might crop up in the work at hand. TOOLBOX SAFETY CARDS give the foreman a tool to use with the talk, and they give the worker a reference for the talk and for follow-up later on.
INTEGRITY AND COMMON SENSE BELONG IN THE TOOLBOX
All of us, at times, bring distractions from our personal lives to work. There’s a real need for positive, uplifting and encouraging influences in the construction industry. Divorce and family issues, substance abuse and addictions, and other problems add to confusion and create a residual anger and bitterness that affects the workplace as well as one’s private life. A growing ignorance of simple common sense and personal integrity contributes to poor work habits and poor workmanship.
ADVANTAGES OF THE TOOLBOX SAFETY CARD SYSTEM
TOOLBOX SAFETY CARDS bring a positive message to the job site through the wisdom of the ages, stressing character issues such as honesty, loyalty, diligence, patience, kindness, and humility using TRUTH TOOLS FOR LIFE and the truthtoolsforlife.org website.
