You can use creativity and interaction to present safety issues. Successful presentations are informative, stimulating and based on realistic, engaging topics. Visual presentations can be effective, but also have printed materials that can be read and reviewed as necessary. Decide on your type of presentation based on your audience.
Present workplace safety issues in an employee manual. If there are specific dangers for a job, such as the potential of injury from physical labor or environmental conditions, make sure that all your employees are properly trained. Employers can role play and re-enact safety issues in an employee assembly.
Present personal safety to individuals using media resources, such as the Internet and television. For example, use infomercials to offer health and safety advice. Print public service pamphlets and leave them in medical offices and public areas such as schools and libraries. Set up a safety website and list the address on your printed materials and infomercials.
Present travel safety issues in a realistic way with real-world scenarios, such as a car accident or health scare abroad. For example, flight attendants can present safety cards and videos to passengers to show them what to do during in-flight emergencies, and state department websites should have reading material for people to access when they are planning a trip abroad.
Many children are more likely to retain information about safety issues when the information is presented in a visual or interactive manner. Have public service workers, such as police officers and firefighters, visit classes to explain the ways to stay safe, as well as what to do in unsafe situations. Children can also role-play and learn about safety through coloring pictures and watching safety cartoons.
