Quarterly site safety refresher course

There should always be a clear safety policy direction from site management, fed down to operatives, visitors and suppliers.

Key safety messages should be reinforced daily, to help encourage a culture of continuous safety improvement on site.

It is vitally important to ensure that operatives’ knowledge on site safety remains accurate and in the forefront of their minds.

These safety messages can be reinforced through daily briefings, toolbox talks and posters displayed around site.

Below is an example of how sites have made a conscious effort to promote positive safety attitudes and behaviour:

  • Once every four months, the site stopped for an hour, during the working day, for the senior site management to give all operatives a refresher course on site safety.

Such measures are useful for the following reasons: it gives operatives the opportunity to raise any safety concerns, refreshes key safety messages and gives managers the chance to update operatives on any particular concerns, regarding site safety or accidents.
