Material in and material out. A jobsite is a living place of work and because of this trash and mess can pile up quickly. If not properly managed housekeeping can become a major issue on a jobsite. Housekeeping takes not just one person but the entire site to manage properly, reminding people of this is important. This reminder can be done through a toolbox talk. But what is a toolbox talk and how can it be used on a job site?
A toolbox talk is a document that is reviewed as part of weekly or daily meetings with the workers on site to remind them of safety trends or issues. It is intended to provide a summary of information intended to reinforce key items to the workers. A toolbox talk is given by the supervisor and signed off by workers receiving the talk.
This safety tool box talk on housekeeping covers a number of the key basic principles and guidelines for housekeeping on a jobsite. It will help remind workers to keep their areas clean and materials organized.
