Toolbox Talks

Toolbox talks are short discussions or presentations by supervisors to staff/volunteers. They generally last no longer than 15 minutes or so. Often participants gather around the project tool box, hence the name.

A toolbox talk is focused on one specific topic and addresses it in simple terms. While it need not be about a safety topic, it is not uncommon for safety to be the topic.
