Posted by Safety (as ),
Our pre-operative assessment department has a group of staff who all start their shifts at different times, therefore it has been difficult to try to introduce a safety huddle at the start of the day.
So, we have decided to try to do a written message on our communications board for all staff members to look at and ensure we are all working towards the same aim.
Early days but so far it has served not only as a safety huddle but also as an opportunity to deliver a motivational comment which is good for team morale.
