TAILGATE TALKS

Going by many different names, these are a staple of safety programs with public works agencies across the country, as well as safety-conscious contractors.  They can take place as often as you find helpful.  They can be held weekly or monthly or in connection with a new activity or season.  They are intended to be short and focused so that, over time and together with your existing practices and policies, they help build a culture of safety within your crews.  As a service to our local agencies, our intent is to provide supervisors with packages of materials, targeted towards a broad array of public works equipment and practices, that will make it easy for you to carry out these important talks.
