Step 1: Pick a topic

Starting with the right topic is like picking the perfect spice for your favorite dish, it can make all the difference. 

When you’re gearing up to create a safety toolbox talk, think about what’s most relevant to your team right now. 

Is there a new piece of equipment on the site that everyone’s still a bit iffy about? 

Maybe there’s been a recent near-miss incident that got everyone’s adrenaline pumping? 

Use things like this to help you generate ideas. However, for this example, let’s pick a title “How to prevent accidents when using a ladder in wet weather conditions”.

Now, it’s your turn to tweak and tune. Go through the draft and sprinkle in details that resonate with your team. 

Know a recent incident that grabbed everyone’s attention? 

Weave it into your talk to make the message hit home. Or maybe there’s a running joke about safety goggles that never fail to get a laugh?

Since you have the talk generated you can tell Safelyio to create a quiz for that specific talk as shown below:

Click generate and give it a few seconds, once completed it will show you the questions, click “Use This Quiz”.

Step 5: Schedule the safety talk to be sent to your team

Once your toolbox talk is polished and ready to go, it’s time to get it into the hands of your team, and thankfully, Safelyio makes this step a breeze. 

You can schedule your safety talks to be delivered exactly when you need them to be. 

Whether it’s a daily morning briefing or a weekly recap, just set the date and time, and the system handles the rest. 

The system ensures that every member of your team gets the message. 

It’s like having your own personal assistant who makes sure no one misses out on critical safety info.

But it’s not just about sending out talks, it’s about making sure they’re received and acknowledged by each team member. 

You can see who acknowledged the talk and who didn’t.

If a talk goes unacknowledged by a crew member, you can resend.
