How Toolbox Talks Help Us Maintain the Highest Safety Standards

Quality is one of the top assurances you get when working with Waldron Carpentry. Quality goes hand-in-hand with efficiency and effectiveness. 

We have spent the last 20+ years building a reputation based on these elements. We don’t simply comply with the minimum OSHA standards, but choose to go above and beyond to give our clients the best. 

Toolbox Talks

One of the ways we have achieved a reputation of quality is by holding regular, weekly meetings that we call “toolbox talks”. These are scheduled safety meetings that focus attention on one major safety topic per meeting. This allows us to stay up-to-date on safety standards. It also allows us to conduct safety training and to bring up any relevant safety issues. 

We believe that safety issues should be handled on our job sites consistently from one day to the next. These meetings help us achieve that consistency. 

Topics for Discussion

The following questions are typically addressed in our toolbox talks:

  • Are physical hazards eliminated to the greatest possible extent? 
  • Are procedural hazards eliminated by proper work methods? 
  • Is there an appreciation of the importance of safety by all personnel, including management and workers? 
  • Are personnel trained to recognize unsafe situations, and either properly deal with them, or ask for guidance from a supervisor?

A safety program is more than just a list of rules. A safety program requires active employee involvement and management commitment. Everyone on the same page. 

At Waldron Carpentry LLC, we know that our people are our most valuable assets. A good safety program protects people, saves money, increases productivity, and improves the quality of work.

We believe there is a safe way to accomplish every task. We choose to do it the safe way!

Our recent Toolbox Talks have also addressed specific COVID-19 related concerns. How we can better follow guidelines and keep our team safe and healthy. As well as the surrounding community.
