“Work safely. Go home safely.” 
The National Framers Council develops and implements
best practices to help ensure framers leave the jobsite
each day in the same health as they arrived.

Toolbox Talks & Activity Hazard Analysis Templates (AHAs)

Ease of understanding and retention of training is paramount in jobsite safety. Consistent and continuous training is necessary in order to have an effective training system. Furthermore, OSHA requires weekly safety training for a jobsite safety program to comply with federal regulations. Toolbox Talks are a key component in harnessing the benefits of safety training and maintaining an effective safety program. Taking five minutes a week to highlight common workplace safety issues and general tips for a safe, efficient jobsite can transform the safety culture of a jobsite, while greatly reducing the risk of an OSHA fine should an OSHA inspection occur.

Currently, there are 61 Toolbox Talks available with FrameSAFE. The following topics coincide with the six sections of the Safety Manual Template:
