Creating a safe culture means having regular safety discussions with your employees and volunteers. When leading safety talks, use these tips:
- Make your talks personal. Make it clear how the topic relates to the individual and their interactions with your affiliate.
- Keep it short. More than likely, most attendees will not be looking forward to the safety talk. To keep everyone’s attention, make it brief, yet accurate and informative. Address only one or two topics.
- Get others involved. Try asking questions and using interactive demonstrations to keep attendees’ attention. Feature employees or volunteers who have done an exemplary job of being safe.
- Make it a full story. Tie your safety talk to real life examples. Be sure to tell people why you are addressing a specific topic and how it impacts the affiliate.
