When you decide to use a safety cartoon calendar, you’re choosing what’s best for you and your employees.

If you’ve been running your own business for a while, you’re probably familiar with all the problems that can occur in the workplace. Accidents can happen and people can get injured. The injuries can be as insignificant as bumps and scratches but they can also be very severe. Depending on the work position, people can easily lose a limb or even lose their life in case of an accident. Just like every job position has its own dangers, so do the different times of the year. If you want to raise people’s awareness about the lurking dangers all around us, you can hire a cartoonist to make you a safety cartoon calendar.

Cartoons are the most efficient way of getting people’s attention. We all react positively to cartoons as we associate them with happy and careless childhood, fun and humor.  This has been recognized by many industries and lately, it’s being recognized in safety campaigns as well. If you want to raise awareness and to educate people about safety throughout the entire year, the easiest way to do it is with a safety cartoon calendar. You can have a different safety cartoon each month so that the people spend enough time to memorize one episode, but they also get a new lesson each month to keep things interesting and fresh.

When you decide to use a safety cartoon calendar, you’re choosing what’s best for you and your employees. Not only will your workers be safer, they will also be entertained and you can benefit from reduced compensation costs you’d pay for work-related injuries. Your employees are your most valuable asset as they’re the heart and soul of any company. Without the workers, a company would become a soulless and dull machinery that would eventually fall apart due to lack of ideas. As an employer, it’s your obligation to implement and use best safety practices and a safety management program.

Keeping up the awareness all year long with a safety cartoon calendar is especially effective not only because it draws attention, teaches a lesson in a fun way and keeps things fresh, but also because you can present many different hazards and make the content of cartoons more relevant for each moth. As an example, in December, you can try raising awareness about the dangers of leaving the heater turned on when leaving the office, etc. Using the services of a skilled cartoonist such as myself can maximize the effects of your campaign through fun, effective, and engaging drawings for your safety cartoon calendar.

The reasons for having a safety cartoon mascot

First of all, mascots are great at getting the people’s attention. Other than this, having a main character to your safety cartoons can eventually cause the people to bond with the character and to be more receptive to the message and the lessons you wanted them to learn. Mascots can also promote  your company colors or your products and hence increase brand awareness. Your safety cartoon mascot needs to be likeable and memorable so it can become a symbol of your brand and your every employee. A well-drawn safety cartoon mascot will seem engaging and it will affect a large audience.
