Looking for ways to remind your employees to work safe? Here are five easy ideas.
1. Safety Reminder Signs: Hang motivational safety
reminder signs around your facility to keep employees focused on safety. Consider putting them in locations where accidents are likely to occur or where employees should be extra cautious. Also consider putting safety reminder signs on machines and other potentially hazardous equipment.
2. Certification Cards/Tags: It is important that
employees can recognize certified and trained individuals in case of an emergency or for answers to safety-related questions. Certification cards or tags will remind employees who the trained individuals are and may even encourage them to request additional safety training. Certification cards and tags can also boost the morale of the trained employees because they are seen as experts in a certain aspect of workplace safety.
3. Award Labels & Pins: Award labels and safety pins can serve as constant reminders of workplace safety when worn on clothing, uniforms or hard hats. Pins or labels
can feature general safety slogans. They can also indicate the number of years a worker has gone without an accident or how many years they have been trained/certified in a particular activity.
4. Scoreboards: Scoreboards
remind employees that safety is being tracked within the organization.
Seeing how well the team or company is doing toward maintaining a safe workplace can go a long way in encouraging employees to pay attention to safety in their daily jobs.
5. Banners & Posters: Banners and posters are a
large and prominent way to promote accident prevention, good housekeeping or teamwork. Banners and posters can be hung in large areas where there are multiple employees for a quick, general safety reminder.
