What is a Safety Moment?
This concept seems to have evolved in recent years, based on the similar concept of the toolbox talk or pre-start meeting. They are generally short and sharp (3 – 5 minutes). They can be held at the start of a shift, at random times during the day or at the start of a meeting. They could cover a range of topics depending on what is relevant or important at the time ie seasonal, after a holiday or weekend, when work conditions change or following a spat of a particular type of incident.
