Follow these 7 rules to select a toolbox talk topic
  1. Stick to topics about safety problems you're worried about now or that you anticipate in upcoming jobs;
  2. 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;
  3. 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;
  4. Observe job-safety techniques. Focus on what's important (and mandatory);
  5. Listen to and follow up on your company's safety committee and employee recommendations;
  6. Identify poor work practices causing injuries or accidents on the job; and
  7. Plan your schedule out for a month so you have time to research the topics and modify your company policy accordingly.
