What are Toolbox Talks?

Toolbox talks are short, task-specific educational lessons designed to raise awareness on a particular Health and Safety issue. A well done toolbox talk will get the discussion flowing and encourage your team to speak up about safety.

Why use our toolbox talks?

There’s nothing worse (or more embarrassing) than a poorly prepared toolbox talk. With our pre-prepared versions, now anyone can deliver an educational, inspiring discussion on critical safety topics.

Most toolbox talks contain a mixture of

  • Stats, figures and real life stories of injury.
  • “What’s wrong with these photos” images to drive discussion
  • Diagrams, helpful tips and tricks.
  • Questions, answers, and discussion generators.

Toolbox talks well delivered form a critical part of your training program, a necessity under the Health and Safety at Work Act. Don’t spend hours preparing for a toolbox talk, simple click, download, print.
