How to Use the Safety Coach Tailgate Talk Cards

Safety Coach Tailgate Talk cards can be used when teaching safety huddles outside of a traditional classroom setting.

Cards feature discussion prompters and questions with suggested answers. Each card is labeled with a topic. Use all the cards of one topic to form a complete safety lesson, or mix them up for a Jeopardy-style quiz game with your group.

The cards are provided on sheets, with eight cards per sheet. Follow these instructions to create your own set of 48 cards.

  1. Download the PDF file that contains the cards.
  2. PRINT the cards on CARDSTOCK, double-sided. Odd-numbered pages are the card fronts, and even-numbered pages are the card backs.
  3. Use a paper cutter to cut the cards on the faint yellow lines. Finished card size should be approximately 3.5 inches by 2.25 inches.
  4. The small code on the bottom left of the card front should match the one on the back.
