Overview of Package

Our eyes are very sensitive to bright light, which can have negative impacts on our driving performance – also known as Sun Glare or Sun Dazzle. Sun Glare can cause momentary blindness, and in turn increase anxiety and nervousness. This Tool Box Talks explores the issue of Sun Glare and methods of managing it.

Tool Box Talks are an effective and cost-efficient way to communicate information and knowledge about 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 sun glare risks when driving, to a group of employees within the organisation.

The package contains:

  • A generic overview of Tool Box Talk Discussion including a step by step process to assist team leaders/managers and facilitators to lead a tool box talk discussion
  • Aid for the promotion of discussion
  • Topic background information and fact sheet
  • Discussion prompt sheet
  • Participant attendance record sheet
  • Participant self-assessment sheet
  • Discussion review sheet
  • Sun glare risks when driving poster
