General Instructions for Conducting Tool Box Talks Page 1 Choose Hand Safety Tool Box Talks, are designed to be used by foremen, supervisor, trainers or others responsible for job-site safety to raise workers’ awareness of the importance of hand safety, potential hand-related hazards on the job, and preventive measures. These Tool Box Talks are meant to stimulate conversation between the person presenting the information and the workers regarding how to prevent hand injuries on the job site and how workers can keep their hands safe in general. Prior to presenting, the person conducting the Tool Box Talk should spend time: 1. Reviewing the content of the Tool Box Talk. 2. Identifying personal or “real life” examples to share that reinforce the points to be made. If appropriate, use props such as the tool or piece of equipment being discussed. 3. And thinking of additional questions to ask to draw the attendees into the discussion. And, last but not least, give employees some take away actions…. When you start work remember…….
