How to Develop a Tool Box Talk

By the same token, if you feel ambitious why not develop your own tool box talk.  Either reading it from a page, or producing a full presentation, make sure it is lively. Consequently, I have learned the hard way that long drawn out speeches are not the way to go. Short and to the point if reading from a script is better. Therefore, I personally like to use technical programming. Videos, and music in addition to a text message helps getting the point across.  As a result, the message is retained by the crew. 


Delivering a Toolbox Talk 

Most noteworthy are a few simple rules for delivering a toolbox talk.  Overall, know your material and don't get sidetracked by other topics. In addition, keeping good eye-contact and a clear load voice so everybody can hear you works best.  Yet don’t be afraid to request the crew to move closer. Above all else, do not sound like a computer, by conveying just statistics. Rather in some fashion you have to be entertaining.  Most important be lively. With attention to detail, make sure to keep your crew advised. Without a doubt if they lose interest, the information will not be heard. Consequently, bringing in a guest speaker also changes things up. As a result, a different face is something new for them to see with a different voice to hear.  Involve the crew by questions or even a game of safety knowledge with some small rewards.
