Toolbox talks, so what are they?

A ‘toolbox talk’ is a short presentation to the workforce on a single aspect of health and safety. It is a chance to explain how and why things are done, also a good opportunity for a employees to engage in discussions.

We deliver our talks when the team arrive in the morning. We grab a coffee (or tea) sit round and have an informal discussion. This weeks talk was about manual handling, reinforcing good technique and awareness. Injuries can occur from simple things like not clearing and planning your route and especially from not bending your knees.

Having machinery available to lift heavy items is not always practical, sometimes its the good old fashioned method. The toolbox talk is just a good way to cover all aspects of lifting, lowering or moving items in the safest way possible.

  • 5 star review  These guys are incredible. Prompt response to request for quote, very good pricing and extremely professional job. We had a tree removed and stump ground out plus three trees staked. As others have said you wouldn't know they had been except for the missing tree and now upright smaller trees! Brilliant service - thoroughly recommend and will be doing so to anyone that cares to listen :-) Thanks Billy and Kate and the team!

  • 5 star review  We commissioned Evoke to top the trees in our garden and shape as they had had many years of unchecked growth. Evoke was a pleasure to work with, they made the process very easy and their team were efficient and very polite on the day. I am very pleased with the work and would happily recommend them. Thank you!

  • 5 star review  Amazing service from Evoke from start to finish! We had a number of very large and unmanageable laurel bushes growing in the garden which required a significant amount of work done to them to bring them back to a nice size. The work was completed promptly and to a fantastic standard; highly recommended!

  • 5 star review  Very pleased with the work carried out on our trees. Evoke were very punctual and very polite and cleared up after themselves. We wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.

  • 5 star review  We would highly recommend this very professional team. We had a very large, overbearing larch tree which needed to be removed and asked a number of companies for quotes. Evoke not only came in with the best quote but we were very impressed with the skill levels shown and as we watched as the tree was taken down, we saw a team who obviously looked after their tools and vehicles extremely well, worked with safety always at the forefront, communicated well and did an extremely efficient job finishing with everything cleaned and tidied up. We would have no hesitation in using them again.
