In the construction industry, a Toolbox Talk is typically an informal safety meeting focused on a single topic. Also called a Topical Safety Meeting, the goal of this practice is to reinforce an employer's overall training program. They can become a key element in improving an organization and fostering a culture of safety. 

In this course, you'll learn how and why to conduct Toolbox Talks. You'll also get a rundown of sample topics, like the major safety roles on a construction site and OSHA's Focus Four hazards.
