Toolbox Talks Free

Looking for toolbox talks free for safety professionals? You’ve come to the right place!

As a safety professional, you wear many hats during the day. Whether you’re overseeing work activities, or providing a co-worker with coaching to ensure they perform their work safer, your day is never the same! Part of your role also involves educating your crew about the hazards associated with their work. This is done in a variety of ways including safety meetings, safety moments and the common Toolbox Talk meeting.

One thing that all safety people will agree on is just how difficult it is to create these types of safety communications – especially if you’re not a writer. How can you make the same information sound different? How do you format it in a Word document? Where can I find graphics that really illustrate the message I’m trying to convey? These are all questions you probably ask yourself on a daily basis. We understand. It is for this reason that we decided to go ahead and create this website, offering hundreds of free resources for safety professionals.

Why do we offer Toolbox Talks free for safety professionals? Well, we understand that a lot of companies just can’t pay for additional resources, so we’ve decided to offer this service completely free!

We offer toolbox talks free to safety professionals on a variety of topics including:

  • Cold weather hazards
  • Hazards of poor communication
  • PPE
  • Complacency
  • Slips, Trips and Falls
  • And many more!

We understand it’s important to ensure that Toolbox topics are relevant to your current work conditions, so feel free to select a message that resonates from the hundreds we’ve uploaded to our site.

We have tried to include every Toolbox Topic we could think of, however, if you feel we missed something, just let us know. We currently accept content submissions from all safety professionals.

Cold Weather Safety

Cold Weather Safety Tips To Remember While Working Outside

With the colder weather upon us, now is the time when slippery surfaces can form in the places we least expect. All it takes is one good snowfall or rain mixed with below zero temperatures, and you can find yourself in some treacherous conditions. This can be especially concerning for those of you who work outdoors for a living.

What Can You Do?

If you’re concerned about cold weather safety, there are many things you can do to stay safe. One of the most important things you can do is check your work area and your path of travel for icy/wet surfaces that could cause you to slip and fall. They may not be very obvious at first, especially after snow has fallen — as there could be ice (or other debris) lurking underneath it that can cause you to slip, trip or fall. If you find slippery conditions, please take the time to correct the hazard. By doing so, you could prevent someone (or even yourself) from becoming injured. If you have access to salt/sand, be sure to spread it on icy areas.

The other thing you must keep in mind is your ability to stay balanced while walking in areas where slippery surfaces exist. How can you stay balanced? Well, one trick you can try is to walk like a penguin (no, you don’t have to make penguin noises). You may feel a little silly doing this, but it actually looks quite normal. Simply extend your arms outwards to the side, keep your knees loose, and your feet pointed slightly. Don’t forget to take short strides as well (very important).

Also, if you need to drive in slippery conditions, remember to adjust your speed and slow down if required. Keep these cold weather safety tips in mind to protect yourself at work.
