9 Creative Communicaton Techniques to Improve Toolbox Talks - Training Course Outline

Supervisors are the linchpins in an organisation that set the performance levels when it comes to safety, productivity, skills development and job satisfaction.

This course teaches supervisors the importance of their job role and that what they demonstrate and request from staff determines safety levels.  It provides supervisors with information about what makes a high performance safety culture, followed by 9 “Connect & Collaborate” Communication Skills to improve employee safety engagement.

The course goes through how to use these skills in toolbox meetings and includes a Toolbox Meeting Template to help supervisors encourage better safety meeting performance.

This engaging and activity based video course (with just around an hour of content) includes a workbook with activities, a toolbox talk template and a quiz.  It also provides additional training content to reinforce training via regular fortnightly emails.
