Appropriately maintained tyres & wheels play a critical role in road safety given they’re the only part of the vehicle in contact with the road surface.

Pre-start checks are an indicator of periodic inspection. Look for loose wheel nuts plus cracks, corrosion, or elongation of stud holes when completing the pre- start check. Maintenance practices are an indicator of the safety culture of your company. Vehicle maintenance helps you manage the vehicle as an asset. Identify practices or devices for early detection of high- risk situations. The talk features interviews with drivers from Holcim and Toll. Each give their own tips and stories about their experiences, but ultimately they share the same message: the importance building resilience as a professional driver.

A fact sheet, poster, facilitator guide, overview and PowerPoint are also included. The fact sheets are available in three different versions, depending on the audience. One is targeted towards drivers, one towards companies and the other includes all the information.

The Toolbox Talk is designed to be flexible so your organisation can present or distribute it as you see fit.
