Tool Box Talks

Various types of Tool Box Talk documentation can be found down the left side of this page.

A toolbox talk is a short safety talk, normally delivered on site (not in a training room) and on a specific subject matter. It should be short, 5 – 10 minutes, and too the point with a specific safety message.

The objective is to raise awareness of a particular aspect of the work but to do it on a regular basis so that the good safety message is reinforced. Attendance should be recorded.

Toolbox talks and pre-start meetings have become a very effective way of maintaining safety awareness and bringing attention to any current or emerging hazards and risks. They are meant to be a brief, interactive discussion about a specific topic but can also touch on a number of issues relevant to the workplace.
