A Toolbox Talk About the Importance of Staying Focused
It is important that you concentrate on the safe completion of your work. It’s very easy to become distracted. Perhaps you start to think about your weekend plans, or maybe a co-worker is chatting to you while you’re working. If you find yourself becoming distracted while completing your task, stop your work and take a break until you feel confident that you can focus on the task completion. It’s also a good idea to write down any personal “to-do’s”, so you can relax and focus on your work, instead of what you may possibly forget to do when you get home. It may seem harmless to let your mind wander away from the task at hand, but inattention and a lack of mindfulness of the task at hand is a contributing factor to incidents. Stay focused everyone!
