Safety Meeting Topics

A Safety meeting topic is a concise talk about a specific safety topic relevant to one’s workplace. It is usually performed by a safety officer employed at the organization at the beginning of a meeting or shift. Also known as safety moment, safety minute, safety brief, safety meeting, or toolbox talk, these talks can be done in a variety of ways, but are typically a short (one to five-minute) discussion on a safety-related topic. They can cover a variety of safety issues and are designed to provide a quick, helpful hit of information before workers head out on the job.
