SAFETY TRAINING TALKS MANUAL
Safety Training Talks assists you by providing close to 300 training talk topics between the print and online editions of this publication. These grab-and-go tools for general industry and construction make it easy to conduct employee safety talks. Such training sessions, usually 5 minutes long and conducted weekly at the start of the shift, are a popular and widely used means to convey safety information. This product is designed specifically for use in these types of training sessions. However, the information included here can also be used when preparing other, more in-depth training sessions.
Each safety training talk topic includes an overview, a summary of training requirements (along with training tips and references to where to go for more information), and one or more handouts. Each talk topic is aimed at either general industry, construction, or both. In addition to the overviewsummary-handout format, some topics come in other formats — real life story talks tell a brief story to illustrate a hazard or regulation, and citations talks summarize the citations and fines that resulted from OSHA inspections.
Whether you are in general industry or construction, safety training is a critical component of your safety program. You cannot expect your employees to work in a safe manner if you don’t explain what they need to do and how to do it. Your safety training program is the way management provides required OSHA safety instruction and information on specific work hazards. Your training program also helps to instill your organization’s safety culture.
Safety training talks, also known as “toolbox talks,” are an important part of your whole safety training program. They can be used as refreshers of previous training, as a reminder of specific hazards your employees may face on the job, or as introductions to more in-depth work-specific training subjects. Safety training talks are effective means to provide required OSHA safety instruction and specific work hazard training. They also offer a mechanism to show employees that your organization is serious about their safety, health, and welfare.
