Make the Most of Your S.A.F.E. Cards®
Your goal is to build safety awareness and to make sure everyone is working safely. S.A.F.E. Cards® can help make your training quick, easy, and most importantly, effective. S.A.F.E. Cards® are ideal for on-the-spot training. Use them:
- To review safe practices for today’s tasks
- To turn a delay into a training opportunity
- For daily safety brief
- For remedial or reminder training
- To review ideas you covered earlier in a Weekly Safety Meeting

Document Your Training
Regular safety training is important. Having your safety training documented is better. Documenting your use of S.A.F.E. Cards® safety training is easy using one of Safety Meeting Outlines’ tracking logs.
First, decide why you are documenting your training – is it for your own use, to meet company requirements, to complement the message in your Weekly Safety Meeting, or to have documentation in case of an OSHA inspection?
Next, determine how you want to document your training. You may want to download one or more of our forms, develop your own tracking sheets, or make a note on your Weekly Safety Meeting. Depending on your needs, you may find it helpful to use more than one training log.
We have created three logs for you; and they’re available for you to download. Additionally, the S.A.F.E. Card® Training Log can be purchased in pads of 30 logs.
S.A.F.E. Card® Complete Set Training Log - Use this log if your goal is to train on most or all 100 S.A.F.E. Cards® . Simply fill in the date you trained the crew on the space next to each S.A.F.E. Card® topic. You will be able to see at a glance which S.A.F.E. Card® topics you still need to train on.
S.A.F.E. Card® Daily Training Log - Use this log if your goal is to train daily or most every day. Print a log for the month. Fill in the month and the year at the top of the form. After you train, fill in the category and topic of the S.A.F.E. Card® that you presented to the crew.
S.A.F.E. Card® Training Log - Use this log to document what Card was used, and who was trained. Print several (or order pads of them from SMO) and keep them right in the box with your S.A.F.E. Cards® . Be sure to have everyone in your crew sign before they head back to work.
