Overview of Package

With onset of COVID-19 has undoubtedly changed many aspects of our lifestyle, driving being no exception. Hygiene and sanitisation has become a big priority, and it is important to ensure your vehicle stays well-maintained, clean and safe. In addition, stress levels and emotions have been heightened, increasing risk of emotional driving, driver distraction, impulsivity and road rage. This ToolBox Talk discusses both the details of keeping your vehicle environment clean, and maintaining a safe driver attitude. Driving in COVID-Normal conditions means looking out for our physical, as well as mental wellbeing, and driving to keep everyone safe on the road.

Tool Box Talks are an effective and cost-efficient way to communicate information and knowledge about work driving safety, health and safety and operational issues within a workplace. A Tool Box Talk should ideally take approximately 15-20 minutes. This Tool Box Talk Package is designed to provide Team Leaders/Managers and Facilitators with the required resources and information to conduct a tool box safety talk about Driving in Poor Visibility to a group of employees within the organisation.
