Safety Poster is Nothing but a Cheap and Effective Insurance Policy

Posted by Snehal P on September 16th, 2016

As part of an overall safety program, displaying relevant safety posters can go a long way toward promoting top-of-mind awareness for important industrial safety issues. Strategically placed visual reminders designed to help keep workers focused on important safety concerns can help prevent many occupational injuries. It's definitely a good idea to display safety posters in your workplace. Posters can serve as important reminders of the do's and don'ts of staying safe at work. They can be displayed in break areas, on bulletin boards where employee announcements are posted and in work areas.

In addition to acting as constant reminders about dangers and hazards, workplace safety posters serve to communicate safety messages, support training and enhance the safety culture.“Though seemingly simple, good posters have the ability to tap into the psychological principles of perception and cognition.”Human evolution and biology cause us to see and understand certain visual clues better than other types of communication, including text.

Safety messaging that is simple is most effective; they should provide straightforward information in a bold, consistent way. Safety posters demonstrate company’s commitment. Posters are one of the most consistent tools to demonstrate safety culture in a workplace, as they are highly visible and always present. It does bring focus on positive behaviors. Effective posters promote positive behaviors in the workforce, and that is the cornerstone of any effective safety program. The visual elements on a poster, placed in prominent positions, are inescapable and unavoidable. It helps in maintaining the interest of the observers. Posters that are periodically rotated provide a simple, easy and inexpensive way to maintain interest and focus in safety messaging.

The word focus might be only small, but the meaning is HUGE when it comes to safety.
