Simultaneous Operations (SIMOPS) occur when two or more potentially conflicting work activities are carried out within the same location at the same time.

During SIMOPS there may be operations that interfere with each other and introduce risks that are not visible when each activity is considered independently. They may increase the risks of the activities or introduce new risks that have an impact on people, the environment, equipment or buildings/structures.

The interaction and interface between two operations carried out at the same location and time need to be considered to ensure all hazards are considered.

Our SIMOPS toolbox talk helps keep employees safe and reduce health and safety issues in workplaces where operations are carried out simultaneously.

Items Covered in the SIMOPS Toolbox Talk

Our simops toolbox talk is split up in following sections:

  • Introduction: Introduction to what SIMOPS is and how it introduces new hazards.
  • The Hazards: List the additional hazards introduced when work operations are carried out simultaneously
  • Control Measures: Define how to mitigate the risks associated with carrying out work operations simultaneously.
  • The Law: List the regulations relevant to carrying out work operations simultaneously.
  • Toolbox Talk Questions: Include a few questions to validate attendees understanding of the toolbox talk.

Each of our toolbox talks include an additional page where relevant hazards on site can be identified and discussed, together with an attendance list where participants can be recorded and sign.
