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.
In this webinar we explored:
- 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
