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.

Electrical General Requirements Word Game (1910.303)


As a kid, one of my favorite villains on the Amazing Spiderman was Electro, a walking, talking electrical hazard. Creating Electro as an arch-villain seems appropriate, because electricity can present many hazards at home and at work. And apparently, some people are either not aware of these hazards or are not taking them seriously enough, because the Electrical, General Requirements standard often appears on OSHA’s list of most commonly cited violations.

In this post, we’ve got a fun word game that lets you test your knowledge of electrical terms related to 1910.303 (the words and definitions themselves come from 1910.399, where all definitions for the subpart are listed). Hope you enjoy this one!

Lockout Tagout Word Game (Control of Hazardous Energy 1910.147)


What do you do when there’s a hazard?

As any horror movie aficionado will tell you, you lock the hazard out (although discriminating horror-movie watchers may remember that strategy didn’t work so well in The Shining).

But I digress. When it comes to hazardous energy, you definitely want to lock it out and tag it out before working on a machine or equipment. As we all know from OSHA’s Control of Hazardous Energy-Lockout/Tagout regulation (1910.147).

In this article, we’ve got a fun lockout/tagout word game to help you remember all that. You can play it online from this blog post as often as you want. We’ve even set up an option so you can download a free copy for yourself.

Good luck with the game. Or, as the French would say, bon chance!
