    I.    PURPOSE

          The purpose of the HS Pre-Job Briefing/Toolbox meeting is to give every associate the
          opportunity to:

              Express their concern about a particular hazard on their job
              Hear and learn about recent incidents that have occurred in their department or plant
              Ask any question they may have about HS
              Hear and learn about a HS issue or concern of particular importance at the time
               especially about the hazards on a particular task prior to doing the job

          Definition

          A Pre-Job Briefing/Toolbox meeting is a brief informal meeting that is short in nature
          and covers a specific topic such as: safety rules, employee concerns, industrial hygiene,
          accident reviews or other safety issues. These issues are generally directly related to
          the department or applicable to the department and crew. Pre-Job Briefing/Toolbox
          meetings can be held in meeting rooms or on the plant floor.

          Toolbox talks shall not be used for regulatory training.

          Typical topics include injury reviews, statistic reviews, JSA/SWI reviews, safety
          concerns, safety issues, reminders of safe work practices and rules, general toolbox
          talks, demonstrations, floor activities, videos, slides or any other item that can improve
          the safety of the area.

   II.    POLICY

          A minimum of one (1) formal health & safety pre-job briefing or toolbox meeting with each
          hourly employee will be held weekly. Briefings or meetings will be conducted by each
          person who supervises hourly personnel.

          Health & safety pre-job briefings and toolbox meetings will be reported on the form
          attached (Exhibit A.)

   III.   PROCEDURE

          A.      Each supervisor will present needed information that is critical to the safe
                  completion of a non-routine task or to review and make employees aware of
                  hazards associated with an existing job. Subjects presented will be relevant to the
                  employees doing the task.



                                              Page 1 of 3
      B.     The pre-job briefing or toolbox meeting is designed primarily to provide awareness
             training and reminders prior to doing a task. Unsafe conditions may occasionally
             be a subject for these meetings if they have not been eliminated with the planned
             task or job.

      C.     The meeting is an employee's meeting and will be conducted by the supervisor in
             such a manner as to permit the employees to contribute their knowledge of the
             hazards involved in a job and the action required to control those hazards.

      D.     Supervisors will ask each employee present at the meeting to sign the form after a
             meeting is held. If any employee refuses, the supervisor will list the employee's
             name.

      E.     Each supervisor will maintain a file of pre-job briefing or toolbox meetings held and
             will make this file available to each new employee for review when reporting to
             work.

IV.   TRAINING

      (Note: A Power Point Presentation is available on this subject. Indicate here the

IV.   EVALUATION

      A.     The (SPA) or a pre-job briefing or toolbox meeting tactical team, established by the
             Plant Strategic Safety Committee, will audit and evaluate random meeting reports
             to determine the program's effectiveness.

      B.     Department Managers and/or Superintendents and the (SPA) will attend random
             meetings held by supervisors to provide support and constructive criticism on
             meeting topic preparation, discussion of problems, and commitment by employees.
