Toolbox Talk – Listening Safety on Jobsites
Every construction site is filled with sounds. These sounds come from tools, machinery, materials, and the environment. The sounds will vary depending on the setting and project, but nearly every contractor can identify the “normal” sounds of a worksite, given enough time and experience. With alert listening skills, your workers can learn to identify the signs of a hazard – whether this be the breakdown of an electrical tool, or an approaching thunderstorm.
