Safety Toolbox Talks aren’t enough

The single most searched for topic that lands readers on this blog is “Safety Talks” also known as “Toolbox Talks”. Coming up with a new topic for the next safety meeting or looking for something to hand out on a topic that’s been a problem, presenters use these sheets to make sure that employees understand and follow along. You can find a whole bunch of them here.

Unfortunately all too often these toolbox talks become a substitute for proper research and work so that they end up bland and boring; something for the employees who have to sit through these meeting to doodle on rather than anything of value.

So before you give, or have someone else give, the next safety talk have a look at the Society for Human Resource Management website. They have put together a great article entitled “How to Make Your Safety Training Talks Effective” that outlines 12 points to keep in mind in order to make sure that they are effective and well-done.
