Every field employee must attend a Toolbox Meeting each week they perform work. These are quick meetings, held at the beginning of each week that all Powerhouse Field Employees must attend. These meetings are led by the Crew Lead, but Project Managers share the responsibility to make sure they are completed on a weekly basis and properly recorded.
CREW LEAD INSTRUCTIONS
1. Start with any topic for the first week. Go in order by week, but if the topic doesn’t apply, skip to the next topic that is relevant to the project. Save a link to this webpage!
2. Read through the safety topic a couple times. Find examples of how the topic applies to the project. Use props if you can. Conduct the meeting in a quiet place before work starts.
3. Fill out the online Weekly Toolbox Meeting SignOff by clicking HERE. Have everyone that attended print and sign their names.
4. Or print off this form and submit it every week to your Project Manager.
PROJECT MANAGEMENT INSTRUCTIONS:
- If the Crew Lead doesn’t use the online form, submit any manually signed off sheets to the safety director within the same week.
- Build these into your project manual.
- We can setup a custom goformz link that will send you a copy via email every time the Toolbox SignOff form is completed.
- Set reminders or use a task in Infinity to ensure your Crew Leads are conducting Safety Meetings.
- It is ultimately your responsibility that they are completed. Audits will occur throughout the year with consequences for those that do not implement.
