10 OSHA-Based Word Games: Great For Fun Safety Meeting Activities

10-osha-safety-word-games-imageIn this article, we’ve collected ten free safety word games for you and have even created a way for you to download copies of all ten games in one click.

The word games are based on the standards that show up again and again on OSHA’s Top Ten Violations list. So, it’s worth knowing these terms. Plus, the games are fun to play.

Each of the games is based on terms that OSHA defines in each of those standards. So they’re a good way to get more familiar with OSHA’s definitions. (By the way, this is one of 2 sets of safety-based word games we offer–the other set of safety training word games includes terms and concepts from our online safety courses, so you may want to check that one out too).

Remember that to play any of the games, you’ve got to click one of the ten links below. Also, remember that if you want to download free copies of the games, you’ll download a zipped folder in a format called SCORM that you can then import into a SCORM-compliant LMS and then play the games from the LMS (you can’t download and then play the games without using an LMS).

If you’re going to go with the download option, read more about how that works below and then scroll to the bottom of the article to click the download button.

  1. These games are a fantastic resource for adding a level of engagement to safety training. Having the trainee personally involved with the learning process definitely helps them retain information. Other organizations should use you as a model for creating interactive and engaging safety programs.

  2. Is there any way to shorten the amount of time allowed to pick the letters. I am finding that people are able to select every letter in the alloted time thus giving a false gauge of how much people know.
