Giving Safety Talks: A guide for the construction sector – Self-Directed (2012)

This document is part of a resource package prepared by Alberta Workforce Essential Skills (AWES) to help staff members deliver safety training in the construction sector to workers whose first language is not English. Specifically, this guide is aimed at smaller organizations that may not be able to hire a workshop trainer.

This self-directed guide, as well as the facilitator’s guide and the participant workbook, can be used in conjunction with a set of 50 safety posters illustrating various safety topics.

The authors suggest two different approaches for using the guide. It can be used independently, with the user working through the resource on his own, and asking one or two close colleagues to perform formal evaluations of his safety talks using the checklists at the back of the guide.

Alternatively, a team that regularly gives safety talks can choose to work through the resource together, using the checklists to collaborate on performing formal evaluations of the talks.
