Total Safety Industrial Safety Moments

Official Description  

“Need a safety moment for your safety meeting? Total Safety has you covered.

With safety moments broken out by industry and common safety topics, our app gives you a quick way to prepare for your safety meetings.

Each safety moment includes links to cited sources.1


Thumbs Up

  • cost is free
  • good graphics and photos
  • lots of training topics to choose from
  • appropriate for employee training meetings (AKA toolbox talks)
  • the only ad we found was one, semi-hidden link to a video about their consulting services
  • works off-line


Thumbs Down

  • most of the topics are extremely simplistic/basic/elementary 
  • information found in these brief topics do not do a very good job of covering OSHA training requirements – we would not use these abbreviated topics for OSHA compliance training
  • in some parts of the app, the developer does not use proper English

Overall Rating

  • iPad / iPhone  –  ♥♥♥♥
  • Android –  ♥♥♥♥
  • Overall – a good source for lots of very short training topics for toolbox talks
