The key to a good safety meeting

  •  Keeping it to one safety topic
  • Making sure it is about a hazard that is relevant to the work being performed
  •  Keeping the meeting between 5-10 minutes

By keeping the meeting specific to one topic, you're able to focus your efforts and keep your employees involved in the meeting. Multiple topic safety meetings have a tendency to lose their focus, making them less effective in  protecting your employees.

By making sure the safety topic is relevant to the work your employees are performing provides them awareness of the hazards they may be exposed to during the workday, thus helping to prevent accidents created from those hazards.

By keeping the meeting between 5-10 minutes, your meeting will never become cost prohibitive for your company and it will help prevent your meetings from becoming another
 coffee break where the focus is more on the break
than the safety topic.

It's simple, an effective safety meeting is not about how long your meeting is or how many topics you discuss during each meeting. It's about making sure your employees are aware of the hazards and understand how  they can protect themselves
from those hazards.

  • Mandatory Common Sense Safety Standards Say to Use Ladders Safely

If you must work from an extension ladder, consider using a fall protection system attached to a secure anchor point on the building, especially if pushing, pulling, or prying. (The fall protection should be designed by a qualified person.**) And keep both feet on the same rung.  Do not hold objects in your hand when moving up or down or stepping on/off a ladder to an upper level. Attach objects to your tool belt or pull them up on a line after you get to your work spot.  Do not use a ladder when it is windy.  Never move a ladder while someone is on it.  Lower the top section of an extension ladder before you move it.
