Safety Meeting Facilitation
We are experts at delivering a safety meeting facilitation at your project, facility, or conference center. A safety meeting or toolbox talk is a brief safety talk or meeting about a specific subject at the beginning of the shift. These talks, or, safety meetings, can be done in a variety of ways but are typically a 2-5-minute interactive discussion that takes place just before the beginning of a new work shift. As an employer, it is essential to remind employees each day before they go to work, the importance of being safe.
We are always available to deliver a safety meeting facilitation for you. However, this is an area that you can save money by having your supervisors ensure this are completed each week. Every month we provide free safety meetings that you can download for free. Our download packet includes instructions on how to conduct the meeting each week.

Conducting your safety meetings on your own provides a great way to include everyone in your safety culture.
How to Conduct a Weekly Safety Meeting
- Hold the meeting on the job, preferably where everyone can sit and relax.
- Hold the meeting at the beginning of the shift, right after lunch, or after a break.
- Supervisors do not always have to lead the meeting. Encourage other employees in your group to lead a meeting. Task an experienced employee or someone that just attended training with presenting a topic that week.
- Encourage as much employee participation as possible yet keep your meeting short. Ask questions about the topic to generate discussion and get employees involved.

Safety Meeting Frequently Asked Questions:
Are regular safety talks or toolbox talks required by law?
No. OSHA does not have a standard that requires employers to conduct regular safety meetings. Additionally, if safety talks are conducted by employers, they are not required to be documented and records of that meeting kept. However, conducting regular safety meetings (safety talks, toolbox talks, etc.) and keeping documentation of those meetings are a great, fast and easy way to remind employees each day before they go to work, the importance of being safe. It also shows employees that their safety is of utmost importance to you, their employer.
Can you get certified in Toolbox Talk, Safety Talk or Safety Meeting topics?
Because these meetings are optional, and topics of meetings are at employer discretion, there is no certification given or required by having these meetings. Remember, these meetings are very brief and only last 2-5 minutes; they are simply safety reminders and tips for the day.
