Toolbox Talks:
This talk discusses best practices for choosing safe and effective personal protective equipment (PPE) for women in the workplace. While the talk is designed to advise female workers about safe practices for choosing and wearing PPE, the information can be valuable to all audiences, particularly regarding the safety risks involved in modifying PPE.
This talk discusses the importance of responding to electrical shock in the workplace and covers best practices employees should follow when a fellow worker is the victim of an electrical shock.

Toolbox Talks:
This talk discusses OSHA's and the CDC's recommendations for wearing face masks in public, including the workplace. Consult your state or local health agencies for further guidance. Note: This talk is designed to help train workers who are unvaccinated or otherwise at-risk, as well as workers who are vaccinated but located in areas of substantial or high community transmission.
This talk is for passenger van drivers and discusses how to manage potential COVID-19 exposure so that workers can safely perform their job functions. Note: While this guidance is primarily focused on protecting unvaccinated or otherwise at-risk workers in their workplaces, OSHA and the CDC recommend that fully vaccinated individuals wear a mask in public indoor settings if they are in an area of substantial or high transmission and encourage them to wear a mask regardless of the level of transmission.
Final Rules:
OSHA has amended one of the rules interpreting the anti-retaliation provision of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act or Act) to clarify that the test for showing a nexus between protected activity and adverse action is ``but-for'' causation.
Toolbox Talks:
This talk discusses practices for social distancing for workers who are unvaccinated or otherwise at risk and are not covered by OSHA's COVID-19 emergency temporary standard (ETS) for the healthcare industry. It also applies to workers who are vaccinated but located in areas of substantial or high community transmission of COVID-19.
This talk discusses practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace, including how the disease is transmitted, symptoms of COVID-19, and ways to stay safe and healthy. This toolbox talk reflects the latest guidance from OSHA, which recommends employers follow a multilayered approach to keeping both vaccinated and unvaccinated workers safe. This guidance focuses on the hygiene practices in the workplace that can protect those workers who are unvaccinated or otherwise at risk, as well as those vaccinated employees who may be susceptible to new variants of COVID-19 in areas of substantial or high community transmission.
