The importance of pre-starts and safety briefings should not be underestimated. When run effectively, they encourage two-way communication about safety hazards and controls, provide an open forum to discuss lessons learned, and highlight challenges and opportunities for improvement. But the unfortunate reality is that most pre-starts are seen as a ‘tick and flick’ activity, with little engagement or input from the teams on the frontline.
Whether you’re a senior manager looking to support your leaders, on the frontline seeking to inspire your team to take safety seriously, or just curious to know what good looks like... join us on August 12 at 12pm AEST for ‘Running Effective Pre-start Meetings’.
A few key takeaways include:
- How to spot the warning signs that your pre-starts, safety briefings or start-of-shift meetings aren’t hitting the mark
- The fundamental soft-skills needed to influence safety on the front- line
- Creative examples that have captured attention and encouraged engagement
- A simple checklist for leaders to improve within-team communication
