Safety meeting topics appropriate for families include safe storage of electrical wires and cords, procedures for decreasing the risk of a fire and the process of contacting emergency personnel in the event of a fire, medical emergency or dangerous situation. Workplace meeting topics may revolve around preventative measures to take to reduce the risk of falls and slips, instructions on how to safely operate equipment and the procedure for evacuating the building during inclement weather or a fire.
Both home and workplace safety meetings can address designated shelter areas during break-ins or inclement weather as well as instructions on how to preserve resources when in danger or isolated in an elevator or room. Common topics for a safety meeting also include instruction on medical procedures such as CPR or removing a blockage from someone who is choking. Individuals should be instructed on how to use and stock a first aid kit at home and in the workplace.
People who work in facilities with equipment or motor vehicles benefit from instruction on how to safely operate machinery, shut off malfunctioning equipment and the proper protective wear, such as safety glasses, reflective vests, hard hats, long-sleeved shirts, long pants and steel-toed shoes, to protect the body from harm.
