Free interactive toolbox talks
By Leila Steed18 April 2019
GAP Hire Solutions has launched a series of free interactive toolbox talks for industry workers.
The UK-based rental company’s online training series allows users to navigate a virtual jobsite. The 15 interactive modules provide information on safety issues including hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS), working at height, the dangers of dust, and manual handling. Each topic has its own visuals, videos and quiz.
GAP said the talks are intended to facilitate health and safety discussions, provide an educational aid to refresh workers’ knowledge, and draw attention to the risks associated with equipment and surroundings.
According to GAP, the free modules are suited to workers in the construction, utilities, shopfitting, concreting, landscaping and engineering industries. It said the videos are a fun and eye-catching way of engaging workers with health and safety regulations.
Douglas Anderson, GAP’s Joint Managing Director, said, “GAP is continuously adding new divisions and product lines to our fleet, so it is of paramount importance that our health and safety training programmes evolve in alignment with business requirements and regulatory updates.” He added, “Our aim was to create an indispensable, free tool that can be used to keep people safe. I would encourage everyone in the hire industry and beyond to take advantage of this resource.”
