Transform your Safety Communication
How to Craft Targeted and Inspiring Messages for a Productive Workplace
Ms Marie-Claire Ross
Attention Safety Communicators: Do you want everyone Speaking the Same Language on Safety?
Are you frustrated that you're not getting the safety message cut through you desire?
Your workforce is going to give you about one minute to convince them to work safely.
Do you know what to say, or write, in those first 60 seconds?
Employees quickly tune out when they hear bland, irrelevant safety messages. For too long they have been fed complicated, legalistic communication written for compliance that totally ignores that people actually want to feel safe at work.
What is needed is a new and easy way to create compelling, targeted risk communication that catches attention and keeps it. Yet, at the same time motivates employees to change how they think and act about safety, in order to develop a safe, thriving and productive workplace environment. This new way is "Transform Your Safety Communication."
As a safety leader, your role is to prevent workplace accidents. To do this, you need to change behaviour through safety communication. Being a safety culture change agent is crucial to your career success because how you communicate about safety influences whether or not people will accept or reject your safety messages.
You need to read this if you want to:
* Craft attention grabbing and inspiring safety messages that makes safety meaningful.
* Create clear, consistent safety messages, so everyone works to a common standard.
* Understand the psychology behind why people don't listen and how to get around it.
* Engage workers on safety, no matter how cynical.
* Instantly generate relevant safety communication with easy to use frameworks and templates.
