Tea break talks

Tea Break Talks (TBTs) are short presentation and discussion topics for use by all staff to focus on a given topic. The discussions are designed to last from five to 20 minutes and should be presented on a regular basis at safety education and training sessions.

TBTs are prepared on a wide range of topics relating to the specific risks or work activities of the University. Additional TBTs may be developed on request or as the need arises.

The TBTs may be presented by any staff member but it is envisaged they would usually be delivered by a supervisor or manager. Safety and wellbeing staff are also available to deliver the training if required.

It is recommended that these sessions are conducted on a regular basis with a maximum interval of one month.
