Safety Hour

Safety Hours sessions were introduced to improve communication and engagement between line managers and their teams; they put the spotlight on safety, and what we can do to ensure everyone gets home safe every day.

A suite of resources have been created to support Safety Hour facilitators and attendees; to ensure we are getting the most from the Safety Hours we attend:

Safety Hour Guide

A one-stop-shop for Safety Hour facilitators – everything they need to know about facilitating a Safety Hour, including top tips, Do’s and Don’ts and key things to remember about a Safety Hour.

Safety Hour Framework

The framework provides a guide to the format of a Safety Hour session; suggesting areas that should be covered as well as resources that can provide a good source of content for discussions as required.

Safety Hour FAQs

A selection of frequently asked questions on Safety Hour

Safety Hour attendance, action and commitment tracker

This template is designed to capture the time, date and location of the briefing as well as the number of attendees, any actions and commitments that are made during the Safety Hour session. This should be reviewed by the team as actions are completed and outcomes can be discussed.

Some Routes and other business functions have their own trackers.

Safety Hour register

An attendance register is available to capture details of individual employees. This only needs to be used if it’s useful to you.

Safety Hour Discussion pack template

This template has been created to capture a topic and enable discussion as part of a Safety Hour. This can be shared centrally via Safety Central to make this topic available to colleagues across the business to prevent duplications.

If you have a topic you would like to discuss as part of a Safety Hour and would like our support to create the materials, please contact

You can access a range of Safety Hour discussion packs that are already available for use in the Tools and Resources area of Safety Central.
