What Would You Say?
Concise Length 10 min
We all occasionally witness unsafe behavior, but talking with our coworkers about safety can be difficult. We don't want to hurt feelings or make people mad, but we also don't want anyone to get hurt. This helpful video teaches us to effectively communicate with co-workers when we see them behaving unsafely.
This program features three potentially hazardous workplace incidents in which workers confront each other about the hazards. In each incident, examples of poor communication are demonstrated; then, examples of effective and positive communication techniques are demonstrated.
"What Would You Say?" focuses on easy to use communication techniques, including:
- Be positive
- Show that you are concerned about their safety
- Explain the consequences of the hazard or unsafe behavior
- Be specific with your comments
The video also helps us learn to respond in a positive way if someone is pointing out our unsafe actions. Suitable for new and experienced employees in a wide variety of settings.
