    Silver Spring, MD – The Center for Construction Research and Training (also known as CPWR) has published 52 free toolbox talks on construction topics.

    The documents are intended to be printed on both sides. One side features an incident scenario and related questions, prevention tips, and space to write down specific steps workers can take to prevent injuries related to the hazard. The other side has an illustration that can be displayed in the workplace as a poster.

    CPWR, which is affiliated with the AFL-CIO, worked with experts at NIOSH to develop the talks. A range of topics is covered, including aerial lifts, confined spaces, head protection, Lyme disease, nail guns, stepladders, wet concrete and workplace stress.
