Do Safety Banners Work?
That is a question often asked by people in management at American industrial companies.
The answer is YES, Safety Banners can be highly effective at promoting a safe work behavior in the American industrial workplace. Safety Banners are frequently used as an impactful visual reminder to workers of the potential hazards in their workplace and to encourage a worker’s safe behavior.
HOWEVER, not every safety banner is an effective safety banner, so caution is advised when choosing the company from which you are making your safety banner choices.
Properly designed safety banners, that are visually attractive, colorful, attention getting and contain compelling graphic images that stand out in the industrial workplace are highly effective. It is important to note that not every safety banner is an effective worker safety improvement tool. Unfortunately, too many companies make safety banners are merely a set of words placed on a banner with no little or no graphic appeal that usually go unnoticed. If a safety banner is not noticed by the worker, it clearly is not effective. Thus, the first element of focus to the safety banner designer is will it attract the attention of the industrial worker.
The effectiveness of safety banners can depend on various factors, such as the design and content of the banner, the location and visibility of the banner. A quality safety banner can improve the overall safety culture in the workplace. Safety banners that are well-designed, prominently displayed, and integrated into a comprehensive safety program are more likely to be effective in promoting industrial safety.
It is important to note that safety banners alone are not sufficient to ensure safety in the industrial workplace, but they are an important tool in the organization’s worker safety tool kit. Safety banners should be used in conjunction with other safety measures, such as proper training, equipment maintenance, and hazard identification and control.
High Quality Safety Banners in conjunction with proactive industrial safety managers and safety coordinators almost always lead to a safer workplace.
