Section 44(3) of the Workplace Safety and Health Act requires each employer with five or more workers at a construction site to provide safety education — or toolbox talks — for a period equal to every two weeks for 30 minutes OR every week for 15 minutes.
YOUR Construction Safety Association of Manitoba (CSAM) is helping you facilitate these training sessions with virtual toolbox talks, brought to you by CSAM: THE Safety Conference.
Each virtual toolbox talk will cover a popular safety topic and will be about 15 minutes in duration. The first edition of our virtual toolbox talks provides training on hazard assessments.
This virtual toolbox talk focuses on what a hazard assessment is and when to complete it, as well as why it’s important to assess the hazards; who is involved; what to look for; and how to rank hazards, develop controls, and communicate to the crew. There are hazards present on every construction site. The identification, communication, and control of hazards on a construction site are critical, and form the foundation of health and safety on the site.
