Safety Meetings

The Safety Meetings (Tailgate Meetings) module is designed to help your organization comply with Title 8, California Code of Regulations, Section 1509(e) which states Supervisory employees shall conduct "toolbox" or "tailgate" safety meetings, or equivalent, with their crews at least every 10 working days to emphasize safety. Foreman or safety managers can host tailgate meetings directly from the field via mobile app. Crews can be preassigned to a set meeting or added on the fly from the jobsite. Meeting topics can be selected from a database of over 100+ topics or custom created.

2. Fill in the Label field appropriately to your organizations standards.
3. Assign the Safety Meeting to the employee that will be responsible for conducting the meeting.
