Safety Focus of the Week: The Daily Tailboard
Our daily tailboard serves as a hazard risk assessment for the work to be performed for the day. It should not be thought of as just a form with blank lines to be filled out. Instead it should be considered the documented outcome of your hazard risk assessment.
The process involved in performing a hazard risk assessment includes:
- Describe the project and work conditions
- Identify potential hazards
- Select PPE.
- Select measures to protect the workers, the public, and private property.
- Present the emergency contact numbers, local hospitals, and health care providers.
This week we are reviewing the format and the working of the Tailboard in the Friday morning safety meeting. If you can not attend the meeting, and you have comments, please submit your thoughts to Stu.
