Safety Toolbox Talks was started in 2007 as a portal for safety professionals to share and exchange free safety topic resources . . . specifically Toolbox Topics, Toolbox Talks and other free safety resources. If you're like so many companies these days, the daily safety meeting has proven very effective in reminding employees about the importance of safety in their daily tasks.
"Toolbox Talks", "Toolbox Topics" , "Safety Chats" , "Tailgate Meetings" or whatever your organization calls them is a brief safety talk or meeting about a specific subject at the beginning of the shift. These talks can be done in a variety of ways but are typically a brief (2-5 minute) interactive discussion meeting on something safety related. Toolbox Topics are used to cover a variety of short safety training subjects and to remind employees each day before they go to work, the importance of being safe.
The intention of this site is to be an exchange for safety professionals. It can take a lot of work to develop safety topics for such toolbox talks each day or week. Our hope is that if you use the resources on this site, you'll also post your own toolbox talk creations to share with others. Through this exchange, all can benefit from interesting and diverse toolbox safety topics to share with employees during the toolbox talk to emphasize safety at work.
So please, come on in and explore the site. We have a section specifically for free safety topics including toolbox topics on subjects such as behavior safety, lockout tagout, electrical safety, forklift safety, chemical safety and many others. We also have a section for sharing safety files such as images, videos, documents or safety presentations to help you get the message across. A Safety News section keeps you up to date with associated headlines from around the country about safety topics and safety issues. .
Feel free to contact us if there is a category or section that we might have overlooked and you would find helpful.
