Toolbox talk on life-changing injuries

Some injuries will change a worker’s life whenever it happens. These types of injuries will have an impact on fellow workers, the families of the injured, and their friends. When these types of injuries occur, they can be termed life-changing injuries.

Life-changing injuries can result in the following:

  • Broken bones.
  • Loss of vision or complete eye damage.
  • Partial or full immobility of a limb.
  • Amputations.

Life-changing injuries can cause a lot of pain and suffering to the injured person. They can even disrupt their life entirely; for some, they’ll be confined to a particular place.


How to prevent the occurrence of life-changing injuries happening in the workplace

  • Ensure that you carefully and safely perform all your tasks.
  • Do not lose your concentration at any time that you are working.
  • Do not work if your mind is partially settled or ready to work.
  • Do not come to work when sick; kindly visit the hospital.
  • Avoid working under the influence of substances such as alcohol or drugs.
  • Ensure that you are knowledgeable about the task you are about to do.
  • Use the necessary PPE for all your activities.
  • Do not engage in a task that you don’t know about.
  • Do not continue to work when you are tired or feeling dizzy.
  • Ensure that you obtain the necessary permit before the start of the work.
  • Work safely to meet up with the work targets.
