You can search the internet for safety topics, but why do it when I’ve done it for you. Below is a list of some of the best resources I have found for safety topics or toolbox talks. You call so check out the safety topics I post every Monday.
1. Safety Toolbox Topic
Safety Toolbox Topics is a site dedicated to nothing but toolbox talks. Topics are listed by category, and there are a ton of choices. This website is an excellent resource if you need a topic quickly.
2. Harvard Environmental Health and Safety
The Harvard Environmental Health and Safety department has made its toolbox talk library available online. There are a lot of great safety topics here. The topics are in pdf for download and nicely laid out for easy use in the field.
3. American Supply Association
Not only are there safety topics focused on the supply-related topics (perfect for folks that have a shop or shipping and receiving department), but they also provide an excellent guide on how to incorporate safety topics into your daily routine.
The National Electrical Contractors Association and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers provide free toolbox talks in pdf format for easy download.
This site has been around for a while. It’s a little wonky to navigate, but hundreds of safety topics are available in English and Spanish.
6. National Framers Council
Not only does the National Framers Council provide some excellent safety topics, but they also have several other free resources, including an Activity Hazard Analysis (AHA) template.
7. The Center For Construction Research and Training
A world leader in construction safety research and training, the CPWR provides tons of safety topics and other resources on its website. I highly recommend bookmarking this site.
8. Working Minds
Working Minds is dedicated to suicide prevention in the construction workplace. Suicide and mental health, in general, is a sobering issue that many people don’t give enough attention to. Working Minds provides resources for training and safety topics on mental health awareness in the construction industry.
