Construction Safety Inspections Weekly Tailgate Topic (Canada) Mobile App
The Construction Safety Inspections (Canada) Weekly Tailgate Topic app is used in work places and construction sites to prompt weekly conversations and dialogue about occupational safety, and the use of inspections as a part of a safety program.
How does it work?
Inspections are the most reliable way to detect, correct and prevent potential losses. A regular inspection program is the best way to identify problems not anticipated during design or task analysis; to identify equipment deficiencies; and to identify effects of changes in process or materials. This app promotes site safety by driving regular inspections of equipment, work-sites and processes to ensure that all aspects of an operation meet or exceed industry standards and legal requirements. Work site inspections should be conducted at all plants, shops, construction sites and other locations on a regular schedule. A company's safety officer, safety inspector, or or designated individual can use the skills gained from this weekly tailgate topic to more readily identify hazards, and promote workplace safety.
A weekly safety meeting such as those included in the weekly tailgate topic series are helpful in promoting construction safety in the work place.
