Workplace Safety Needs A Safe Pair Of Hands

Safety communication provides immense value in preventing workplace accidents, saving lives and reducing compensation costs. For organizations today, legislation is mandating even greater focus on this important area.

To build a culture of safety requires a steady communication program designed to educate and remind staff to be vigilant and cautious at work.

Effective internal communications can get your safety messages through to every employee, regardless of whether they’re sitting at a desk or sitting behind a fork-lift truck

Tools For Better Workplace Safety Communication

The SnapComms platform combines highly-visible, short-burst messaging for instant attention, with powerful passive communications to build positive longer-term change. In today's overloaded world, mass emails to ‘all staff’ no longer cut the mustard.

Alerts are unbeatable for getting attention and driving action around high priority messages, such as serious hazards or weather warnings. A Video Alert vibrantly summarizes main learning points for staff following training sessions.

Employee surveys capture opinions and ideas in an enjoyable and non-intrusive way. The simple interface generates higher response rates and makes extracting responses and gathering insights easy.

Screensavers promote positive behavior by reinforcing health and safety messages through striking visuals and emotive language. After incidents occur, use them as a promotional campaign to address the issue.

The RSVP tool can drive attendance for those high-importance safety training sessions. Staff are encouraged to attend, which increases the value of the sessions and improves overall workplace safety.

Features To Level Up Your Safety Communications

Improving safety communication in the workplace is easy with these special features of the SnapComms platform. 

  • Targeting
    Staff have limited time and capacity to read and absorb new information. Only send them content that’s relevant to their role or location. Set up custom groups to communicate most relevantly with employees. For example, mobile comms to remote workers, scrolling tickers for call center staff, or digital signage for retail workers.
  • Preconfiguring
    Develop a plan for all health and safety topics you wish to communicate, then create messaging in advance to save time and neglect nothing later on. Set up targeted audience groups as well so that no time is wasted if an urgent notification needs to be sent.
  • Compliance
    For safety policies that require proof of employees’ commitment, include a confirmation piece stating “I comply” or “I agree” within a campaign.
  • Reporting
    Real time tracking provides insights into readership at employee or team level, providing assurance that all staff are being reached.
