Employee safety slogans ensure that the employees stay safe at all times.

Safety slogans are used almost everywhere, but we are so conditioned to not focus on them – that we can’t seem to notice them during our conscious awareness. Especially employees who work in factories or hazardous locations.

For instance, you might have seen alarming messages similar to “Please wear your glasses at all times” in hazardous locations – especially for visitors or employee safety.

But did you pay much attention to it? We don’t think so.

What if there was a 0.1% chance of you (or someone like you) getting injured? Following these safety slogans can actually protect your eyes in an unforeseen event.

The Need for Employee Safety Slogans

Employees usually become desensitized to such things, seeing them over and over again every day, which is why firms are now coming up with newer ways to put forth the message. This is why employee safety slogans matter.

Take a slogan like:

Work Safely – You may not get a Second Chance

The above slogan not only points out that your life is important and unless you are careful, there may be permanent consequences.

Why Else Should Companies Implement Employee Safety Slogans?

Employee Safety Slogans may also help to indemnify the company, or the owners of the company from any future legal actions or law suits.

Many companies and work places are also required to put up safety slogans in work environments by law.

Ways to Make Employee Safety Slogans More Impactful

Employee safety slogans are relevant only if they are enforced the right way. The placement, visibility and the content of the slogan play a very important role in ensuring they are viewed, understood and followed.

Like any other advertising slogan, it is important that the safety slogans are well known by the intended audience. And this usually starts by making them aware of the rules, and ensuring everyone understands why these slogans are in place.

  • Funny safety slogans can often be more impactful in serving a safety reminder. They are often more noticed than boring and straightforward safety slogans.
  • Emotional appeal linked to self, family or community might help to deliver the critical-ity of the slogan
  • Slogans featuring consequences – legal, financial or health are usually known to instill fear. Not the ideal way to get things done, but this is one of the strategies widely used and accepted

The Verdict: Why Employee Safety Slogans Matter?

It is always better to be safe than sorry. This should always be the motto of the company and the stakeholders for its employees. Implementing employee safety slogans is a good start, but make sure your employees truly understand the essence of these slogans.

More often than not, these slogans are ignored – or the employees are too conditioned to them because they are exposed to these safety slogans every day – that they put their importance on a back burner.

That shouldn’t be the case.

It is the responsibility of the employer to keep reminding their staff, colleagues and workers of these slogans. And that they are to be followed for the employees’ own physical and emotional safety.
