SAFETY MINUTE
Toolbox Talk
Toolbox talks are an essential
reminder of the potential hazards
associated with the planned work
and to accordingly execute
control measures prior to the
start of work.
Important Points
Toolbox talks are short, daily discussions or presentations by supervisors with their employees.
They generally last no longer than 5-10 minutes, or so. A toolbox talk is focused on one specific
topic and addresses it in simple terms. While it need not be about a safety topic, it is not
uncommon for safety to be the topic.
 A “toolbox talk” provides an opportunity for a supervisor to emphasize the importance of a
particular issue or procedure regarding work activity tasks to be performed, and for the
employees to ask questions or make constructive comments.
 Toolbox talks address actual and anticipated safety concerns for scheduled work activity. The
talks provide an opportunity to relate specific safety concerns with the job to be performed.
 General safety and task-specific concerns provide a continuous source of topics for discussion.
Consequences of unsafe actions are effective in getting workers to understand and remember
important safety lessons.
 Short discussions / communications review the important points without making the topic
overbearing and boring.
 Toolbox talks should be held daily and address the work task, the hazards associated with the
task and control measures to perform the work safely.
