Safety cartoons are a great way to communicate a variety of health and safety messages, including:

  • Hazard awareness: Cartoons and cartoon strips can be used to illustrate workplace hazards and how to avoid them.
  • Safe work practices: Cartoons can be used to demonstrate safe work practices on the shopfloor.

Cartoons can be an effective communications tool…

Cartoons can be effective communicators for a variety of reasons:

  1. They are visual: Cartoons use imagery to convey ideas, which can be more effective than just using words. This is because visual information is often easier to process and remember than text-based information.
  2. They are memorable: Cartoons often use humour, exaggeration, and other techniques to make their points in a memorable way. This can make it easier for people to remember the message of the cartoon.
  3. They can simplify complex concepts: Cartoons can use simple, easily recognisable imagery to represent complex ideas or concepts. This can make it easier for people to understand and remember these concepts.
  4. They can communicate across language barriers: Because they rely on imagery and symbolism rather than text, cartoons can communicate ideas effectively even to people who do not speak the same language as the creator of the cartoon.
  5. They can convey emotions: Cartoons can use facial expressions and body language to convey emotions and convey the tone of the message being communicated.

Overall, cartoons can be effective communicators because they are visual, memorable, able to simplify complex concepts, able to communicate across language barriers, and able to convey emotions.

Safety cartoons to help illustrate health and safety to kids!

Cartoons can be used to illustrate difficult concepts in a simple and humorous way especially to children, making them easier to understand. They can also be used to convey messages in a more entertaining and engaging way than traditional methods. Cartoons can also be used to break down complex topics into smaller, more manageable chunks, making them easier to digest.
