Your contributions are welcome and needed.  These types of generic safety meetings are used by many and do increase worker safety awareness.  But the topics are broad and I know you have had safety meetings discussing a specific operation, the associated hazards and the controls which should be observed.   Share your knowledge and experience in a MS Word document emailed to webmaster@toolboxtopics.com.  I won't alter  the content or author (unless you request to be anonymous)  but may add header and footers for employee sign in, etc.
