Explanation: Here is a good explanation of a tailgate meeting. They are often used to discuss safety issues at a work site. Since it is such a traditional concept, there might be some merit in keeping "tailgate" in English and adding an explanation.
"Tailgate meetings have been held ever since the first tailgate was invented. Before that, who knows what they were called? The fact is, the concept of the tailgate meeting is not new - it involves **gathering a group of workers around the back of a pickup truck or other location in the field or work area, having some sodas or sweets to hand out, and spending a few minutes going over some important work-related information.**
Though the concept isn't new, the effectiveness of a tailgate meeting for getting information out cannot be taken for granted. This point was emphasized by Elvia Martinez-Mullins of team Excellence in Agricultural Management (T.E.A.M.) at the most recent Safety Breakfast Meeting hosted by the Center for Agricultural Business (CAB). The meeting, held Wednesday, March 10, was another in the monthly series of agricultural safety topics sponsored by CAB.
While a tailgate can provide an excellent setting for a short meeting, there are important principles that must be followed in order to make the meeting effective - to get the message to the employees, Martinez-Mullins said.
