    Explanation
    Never reprimand a crew member in front of their peers because he/she will most likely be embarrassed, and they are less receptive to correction.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    How do you get your people involved in the topic/discussion?

    • A.

      Ask questions.

    • B.

    • D.

      All of the above.

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above.
    Explanation
    You should ask questions to make sure your crew is listening and paying attention and to get them to really think about what you are discussing. Reading off of your notes loses the crew's attention. Have your notes for referral (if needed), but make a point to make eye contact while discussing your topic.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because when preparing a toolbox topic, it is crucial to consider the relevance of the topic to the work the crew will perform. This ensures that the information shared during the toolbox talk is applicable and useful for the crew members, helping them to understand and address potential hazards or challenges they may encounter while performing their work. By focusing on relevant topics, the toolbox talk becomes more effective in promoting safety and improving the crew's understanding and preparedness for their tasks.
