As I’m sure you’re aware you need to keep Health and Safety at the forefront of everyone’s mind 24-7. Health and Safety cartoons can illustrate serious messages in a light hearted way. Most organisations primarily use the cartoons as posters, usually on a regular basis. In this way, employees are informed of ongoing safety issues. Consider safety cartoons via emails, training materials, Powerpoint presentations and calendars(They’re in front of them everyday of the year!)

Remember, save one accident and any cartoon you commission will have paid for itself a hundred fold.

Abrasive wheels safety…

Health and safety cartoons…

Getting serious messages across using safety cartoons could reduce the risk of work-related illnesses and injuries, and therefore reduce staff absences

Nearly 50% of all accidents involving abrasive wheels are due to operator error or unsafe system of work. Workers should take precautions to prevent accidents in the use of abrasive wheels, in particular injury resulting from contact with a running wheel or either wheel breakage. There is no substitute for thorough practical training.

Safety cartoons can help highlight dangers in the workplace. Slips and trips are the most common cause of injury at work. On average, they cause 40 per cent of all reported major injuries and can also lead to other types of serious accidents. Slips and trips are also the most reported injury to members of the public.
In many instances, straightforward measures can readily control risks, for example ensuring spillages are cleaned up promptly so people do not slip.

A good risk management system will help you identify problem areas, decide what to do, act on decisions made and check that the steps taken have been effective.
