Under the Safety, Health & Welfare at Work Act, 2005, The General Applications 2007 and the Construction Regulations 2006, employers on construction sites have legal obligations to employees, self employed, contractors, visitors, members of the public and others. Clients, designers and project supervisors (construction stage) have varying and distinct obligations.
Site employers also have obligations to provide information, instruction and training to new employees, contractors, visitors and others. Toolbox talks enable employers to dispense such information etc, thus initialling the site safety culture and consultative process.
Toolbox talks are an integral part of any health and safety induction to a site. The talks (tailored to specific personnel) will set the standards expected from all participants – while they are on the site. They will also communicate disciplinary measures that apply if there is a deficit in this area.
EazySAFE can provide a consultant to carry out a comprehensive Site Safety Audit on your behalf. This coupled with the induction Toolbox Talks will ensure that safety standards are paramount on your site.
Our consultants have a wide range of experience across all types of employment from industry, commercial, retail, local authority, government departments, and educational and financial institutions.
