The Morning Meeting Toolkit is a resource to help you with your briefings, no matter what time of day you have them. These briefings are also referred to as tailgate meetings, toolbox talks, or crew briefings. Whatever you call them, it is your job as a supervisor to ensure you are helping your employees to grow and to provide them with the information they need to do their job efficiently. Most people think that they should only cover topics related to safety in these briefings, but you should go beyond safety. Whatever your employees need to know quickly can be covered in these briefings.
This kit is fully accessible online, providing for easy access, download, and updates. The first unit, which is the largest, is meant to prepare you to conduct briefings, which are referred to as very short trainings (VSTs). As stated, the topics should not be limited to just safety. The Morning Meeting Toolkit is about more than just improving skills in the Facility Management field; it recognizes the importance of stewardship and accountability all workers are responsible for as employees of the National Park Service (NPS).
