Foremen conduct Tool Box Talks weekly. There are 52 Tool Box Talks
to fulfill the needs of electrical contractors. The goal of this
program is to preplan jobsite safety by involving employees in
defining basic job tasks, identifying the specific hazards related
to each task and determining the required safe procedures and equipment
for each job.
