The video below, shared by RASI SafetyTV, appears to parody old-school safety videos, but does the humor help spread the message or does it make light of a serious situation?
Most people who have sat through a safety meeting knows the material can sometimes be a bit dry. So looking for new and more exciting ways to present the information — such as utilizing humor — could potentially help get workers' attention. However, by using humor, it could also make light of a serious subject, because safety is critical to maintain in plant practices.
So, IMPO readers, I want to know your thoughts: Is it better to be funny or keep it serious when it comes to safety? What is the best way to relay information in a way that will keep employees' attention? Let me know what you think in the comments below.
