Safety Conversation Starters

BAM Construction’s Capital Square Office Development in Edinburgh has introduced Safety Conversation Starters. These are cards that have been designed to instigate safety discussions during toolbox talks with operatives, safety meetings and workshops carried out by health and safety management.

There are 12 main topics on the cards for example; access/egress, lifting operations, falling objects and safety in the office. Within each topic are either 10 or 12 cards with a total of about 150 cards.

To begin the safety conversation, a topic will be chosen relevant to the working environment and 2 or 3 cards chosen at random from this topic. Then the card will be read out to promote conversation on the topic and the resulting discussions will populate an action plan.

The action plan will be filled out with what steps will be taken to improve each topic and all involved in the safety conversation will sign up to the action plan. Any new or innovative ideas to improve safety will be shared with health and safety management and shared across the BAM group.
