Concrete Drilling Toolbox Talk

Concrete Drilling Toolbox Talk


Our concrete drilling toolbox talk improve health and safety on sites where scissor lifts are used and there is a risk of incidents.



Concrete drilling is often carried out in connection with installing industrial racking, or if items need to be fastened to concrete walls or ceilings.

Drilling into concrete releases a fine sandy dust, which contains crystalline silica. Breathing in this dust can cause a serious lung disease called silicosis. Electricians, plumbers, sprinkler installers and other mechanical trades who regularly and routinely drill into concrete are at risk of developing this disease.

Some of the most common hazards associated with concrete drilling include, but is not limited to, the following.

  • Silica dust generated from the drilling process.
  • High level of noise from equipment when drilling concrete.
  • Equipment can be wrenched from the hands of the operator.

Our concrete drilling toolbox talk helps keep employees safe and reduce health and safety issues in workplaces where concrete drilling is taking place.
