Safety Toolbox Talks

Welcome to Safety Toolbox Talks


"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.

If you find something useful, please consider sharing some of your own content so others can benefit. To share your own content you'll need to register with our site. Registration is free but is required for posting in the forums or sharing your safety topics and experiences. See our privacy policy to ensure your information will not be shared with others.

Feel free to contact us if there is a category or section that we might have overlooked and you would find helpful.

This site flourishes because of our users' contributions. We started this site with the intention to share the efforts of safety professionals as they would develop toolbox topics and training topics for their facility and yet all that work and knowledge rarely was shared beyond the facility walls. We all have our own experiences and expertise and this site is an avenue to share them.

We highly encourage you to submit your own safety files such as documents, videos, presentations and photographs with our community. We have tried to make the process fairly easy.
