Toolbox talks are short, targeted training sessions to train your employees on the hazards and risks they will be exposed to in whatever work they are about to do. For example, how to safely lockout a machine or the importance of washing hands before eating.

Follow these 7 rules to select a toolbox talk topic
Stick to topics about safety problems you're worried about now or that you anticipate in upcoming jobs;
If your employees are going to perform a hazardous activity that specific day, discuss that activity's precautionary measures and safety concerns, before they start working;
Failure on your part to select an appropriate topic to present will result in uninterested workers, a waste of time and a loss of creditability on the part of company management;
Observe job-safety techniques. Focus on what's important (and mandatory);
Listen to and follow up on your company's safety committee and employee recommendations;
Identify poor work practices causing injuries or accidents on the job; and
Plan your schedule out for a month so you have time to research the topics and modify your company policy accordingly.
