Weekly ToolBox Talks

Educational Field and Small Mine Services (EFSMS) has developed a series of weekly ToolBox talks that can be used by small mine operators and others to hold safety and health discussions for their employees at their mining operations. We have developed these in consultation with members of the mining community, and appreciate their input. We hope these ToolBox talks will help small mine operators and their miners to keep safety and health at the forefront of their daily and weekly activities.
