We're excited to announce the launch of our free AI-powered toolbox talk generator. With a few simple prompts, you can draft a topical and project-specific toolbox talk, including interactive discussion topics and even offering translations, giving you a new way to deliver training on site.

A new era for toolbox talks

“People switch off when they see the same generic toolbox talk over and over again. This lack of engagement coupled with the failure to include site, project or client-specific information means less effective toolbox talks and puts the workforce at risk” Rob Bullen, Senior EHS Specialist at HandsHQ says.

Our AI-powered toolbox talk generator uses OpenAI’s GPT-4 technology to create tailored, interactive toolbox talks for your team. By inputting a few key details about your workplace and specific safety concerns, you'll create a customised toolbox talk that incorporates UK legislation and codes of practice, quizzes, group discussions, and hands-on demonstrations. Our goal is to make safety training more accessible, engaging, and effective for every worker.

“AI technology has advanced at a rapid pace, but is still inaccessible or difficult to use for many people” says Jamie Carruthers, CEO at HandsHQ. “Our goal is to create a free, easy to use tool so anyone can leverage the power of AI to create a safer environment.”

The benefits

  • Tailored content: Customised toolbox talks specific to a project needs (e.g. a toolbox talk on using non-conductive ladders on a train line because of a recent near miss).
  • Time-saving: Automated generation streamlines safety meeting preparation.
  • Translation: Create versions in any language you choose (coming soon).
  • Presentation: Toolbox talks created automatically in a slidedeck presentation (coming soon).

How good can AI be for safety?

“AI isn’t going to give you a perfect toolbox talk, or anything else for that matter. Think of AI as your super-smart, super-fast apprentice. You still need to check their work, and you are still the competent person responsible for ensuring its accuracy“ Jamie tells us.

“AI in its current form is not coming for your job, but to enhance it. And right now is the worst it’s ever going to be.”

Our AI-powered toolbox talk generator is only the start of our AI innovations. Stay tuned!
