Curious about these things called toolbox safety talks, or tailgate safety meetings, sometimes called safety moments or even safety shares...  see these great references below:

"OSHA Construction Safety Standard 1926.21(b)(2) The employer shall instruct each employee in the recognition and avoidance of unsafe conditions and the regulations applicable to his work environment to control or eliminate any hazards or other exposure to illness or injury." 

- OSHA.gov                                                               

"Tailgate Safety Talks are short, informal safety meetings conducted at the crew level on a periodic and as-needed basis, by first line supervisors regarding job-related hazards and safe work practices. The goal of Tailgate Safety Talks is to inform employees of specific hazards associated with a task and the safe way to do the job and also serves as a reminder to employees of what they already know, and establishes the supervisor's credibility and conscientiousness about his or her responsibilities for safety." 

- New York State, DOT                                                               

"§1509 Injury and Illness Prevention Program.(d) Periodic meetings of supervisory employees shall be held under the direction of management for the discussion of safety problems and accidents that have occurred. (e) Supervisory employees shall conduct "toolbox" or "tailgate" safety meetings, or equivalent, with their crews at least every 10 working days to emphasize safety."

- Construction Safety Order §1509 Cal/OSHA                                                               

"Toolbox talks are a primary way for construction contractors to provide workers with relevant site-specific safety information, but, unfortunately, too many contractors do not understand nor maximize their potential."

- LHSFNA Management Co-Chairman Noel C. Borck                                                                

"Tailgate or Toolbox safety meetings (as required by T8 CCR 1509) are 10 - 15 minute on-the job meetings for employees in the construction industry. Tailgate/Toolbox safety meetings are held to keep employees alert to work-related hazards and prevent injuries. Tailgate or Toolbox meetings must address the specific hazards and safe work practices for the work tasks that employees are actually performing. These meetings allow supervisors to draw on the experience of employees and use that experience to remind them of the dangers of particular construction processes, tools, equipment, and materials."

- State of California, Department of Industrial Relations                                                               

"A Toolbox Talk is an informal group discussion that focuses on a particular safety issue. These tools can be used daily to promote your departments safety culture. Toolbox talks are also intended to facilitate health and safety discussions on the job site."

- Harvard Environmental, Health, and Safety Department                                

"The names vary by industry and worksite—'Toolbox Talks,' 'Tailgate Chats,' 'Safety Meetings,' 'Crew Briefings'—but these brief, pre-shift pep talks can reinforce safety training, heighten employee awareness of workplace hazards and safety regulations, and improve safety performance."

- Roy Maurer online editor/manager for SHRM.                                                                

"Tailgate meeting, toolbox talk, or safety huddle... Whatever you call them, short targeted safety training is key to accident prevention."

- Weeklysafety.com

Tips on how to use safety meeting topics:
  •   Safety Meetings are usually most effective when they are kept to less than 30 minutes. However it depends on your team and how often you have safety meetings. 
  •  15, 10, or even 5 minute meetings held frequently - weekly is what we typically recommend - can be really beneficial and pose the least amount of interruption to the day. 
  •  Consider holding a safety meeting, toolbox safety talk, or tailgate safety meeting on a Friday once per month. Use this as an opportunity to talk about both on the job or off the job safety. Just before a long weekend or national holiday can be a great opportunity to let the team know that their safety is important all the time. 
  •  With short 5 minute safety meetings consider pointing out specific issues that were observed during a recent safety incident, inspection, or near-miss. Take the opportunity to point out "lesson's learned" that were observed or discovered. But always stick to the facts!
  •  Time your safety talks, safety huddles, or safety shares so that they make sense for the season of the year and the weather conditions in your region. Give short relevant safety pointers for their specific issues and concerns.
