Below are all the key resources you will need to teach the FSL, plus materials to enhance the classroom experience.

Instructor Guide

Provides suggested notes to use for each slide as well as ideas for classroom activities and discussion questions. Before teaching the FSL, instructors should review the short introductory section to learn about the presentation structure and content and suggestions for time management.

FSL PowerPoint Presentation (PC or Mac)

Formatted slides with animation functions, embedded videos, and notes.

*Please Note: The PowerPoint is a large file. If you have problems downloading it:

  1. Check with your company’s/organization’s IT staff to see if there is a firewall preventing the download. If this is the case, you might try using a non-company computer; or 
  2. Contact Ms. Sherri Wilson ([email protected]). She can send you a flash-drive containing the FSL materials. 

FSL PowerPoint Presentation 508 compliant slides (Please Note: the 508 compliant presentation requires internet access to view the videos.)

Student Handout
Includes key slides, written scenarios, and note-taking area.

Additional Scenarios

Responding to trainer requests, we created 3 new scenarios (along with instructor teaching information) showing some other trades. You can use one or more of these in your FSL training.

Paper Airplane Activity

Using this Paper Airplane Activity during your training is a great way to demonstrate the importance of practicing 3-way communication

Skill Sheets + Skill Videos 

Download and use these one-page skill sheets and two-minute refresher videos to remind folks of the FSL leadership practices and give them the opportunity to set goals and be accountable.

You can also access the videos using the QR code on the skill sheet.


The posters can be printed in poster size (see suggested dimensions below), hung in the trailer or classroom where you conduct your FSL training, and used as part of your scenario discussions. You might consider laminating them so they can be reused.

The FSL Leadership Skills Poster
Contains a table listing the leadership skills and good leadership actions. Suggested printing dimensions: 34” x 44”

Scenario Facilitation Table Poster
Lists each of the leadership skills. If you laminate it, you can use an erasable marker to check how the class responds to the discussion questions. Suggested printing dimensions 24” x 36”.

Certificate of completion
At the end of class, you may want to give your students a certificate of completion to make it official that they’ve taken the first step to becoming a safety leader.
