Health Impacts Safety Guides support organizations integrating workplace safety, health, and well-being.

These Total Worker Health® guides on safety and health hazards are available for free download. Each scripted guide takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Guides are intended to be used in a small to a medium group setting, such as a safety or health committee meeting, toolbox meeting, or other team meetings. Use in conjunction with OR-FACE Toolbox Talks for an integrated safety, health, and well-being approach.


We offer an English version (instruction, calendar, 12-month meeting guides), as well as a Spanish version (10 meeting guides). Each download includes instructions and ideas on how to implement through “A Year of Impact.”
