Toolbox Talks

Large group of factory worker standing together in warehouse or storehouse.

The Oregon Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (OR-FACE) team has created toolbox talks, which highlight a particular safety issue and provide guidance on how to address the safety issue to prevent injuries and fatalities in the future. The toolbox talks are used to foster a group discussion that focuses on the safety issue at hand and can be used during safety meetings and/or at the start of a shift. Toolbox talks are available in English and Spanish.
