COVID-safe toolbox talk kit
A COVID-19 toolbox talk kit is available to assist staff as part of your Safety Management System.
The toolbox talk kit includes a series of quick guides, videos, checklists and templates as part of the NHVR’s wider suite of Safety Management System guidance materials for industry use. The toolbox talk information focusses on COVID safety associated with heavy vehicles, workplaces, general hygiene – including wearing face masks – and positive mental health actions.
NHVR Safety Assurance Director Greg Fill said all transport operators should continue to have safety conversations with their staff and drivers to reduce the risk of transmission within their workplace, including when handling freight or interacting with other parties in the supply chain.
“Toolbox talks between management and staff are one of the easiest and most effective ways to share important safety information and reinforce responsibility for everyone’s safety,” Greg said.
“The NHVR’s materials can be easily modified to include company information such as logos and additional topics that are specific to businesses. This could include how to report safety incidents and what to do if staff are sick or notice symptoms.”
