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  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  Evoke Tree Services came to our rescue after a bunch of cowboys ‘rode into town’ to remove our back garden hedge and left the stumps in saying that wasn’t part of the deal. I should have spotted their spurs! Evoke was recommended to us, and they were in and out within the hour, everything done and dusted. Thank you Evoke for first class service. The old saying still stands: ‘Pay cheap, pay twice.’ We know where to go next time. 👍

  • 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  Would highly recommend this company. They did a great job of tidying my overgrown jungle of a garden. Taking down 5 trees, pruning remaining shrubs and generally tidying up. All of the waste had to come out via my flat and communal corridor and they did so with extreme care and tidied it all up beautifully. A very professional job. They are also very friendly and polite too.
