The site has introduced Safety Conversation Starters. These are cards designed to instigate specific safety discussions during safety meetings, tool box talks, workshops, etc.
There are 12 main topics, including access/ egress, lifting operations, falling objects, safety in the office, etc. and there are between 10 and 12 cards in each category making around 150 cards.
The main topics chosen relate to the works on site at the time or to the attendees and then 2-3 cards are chosen at random. There are no answers and outcome of the discussions generate an Action Plan which is shared with safety officers and any new and innovative ideas to improve safety are publicised and shared across the group.
