Objectives of conducting safety briefings:

To ensure that everyone performing a task knows what the job is and how to do it safely. Any relevant operating experience, and possible error precursors should also be discussed at this brief.

Identifying the safety focus for upcoming events, top unit areas of concern, and safety responsibilities

Knowing the tasks, identify the hazards associated with the tasks, setting out control in place.

Safety briefings can:

  • inform management
  • improve communication
  • inform employees
