Experience shows that the most effective way to improve the Health and Safety culture of your workplace is to keep reminding your workers (employees, contractor and volunteers) of the hazards and risks involved in their work, the consequences of failing to use the necessary controls at all times, and your commitment to their safety and wellbeing.
Yet doing so doesn't always have to be costly and time consuming, or counterproductive with experienced workers who don't want to be treated like "newbies".
One proven way to engage workers, without wasting their time and your money, or insulting their intelligence, is to use passive reminders that are easy and cheap to update and change so that workers don’t get “blind” to the messages. To this end, Promote Safety is dedicated to producing and maintaining Australia's Largest and Cheapest Range of Quality Workplace Health and Safety Posters.
This includes the use of professionally produced creative resources specific for your workplace including posters, slogans, and humour. Browse through this website to find which resources (mostly free) will help you in fulfilling your Health & Safety Duty of Care to the people in your workplace.
