Even the best safety plans and information are only useful if they are well-known and understood by employees. Regular and clear communication on safety matters is crucial for workplace safety. Employees will not be able to memorize the company safety manual during orientation. It is the responsibility of managers and supervisors to routinely communicate relevant safety and health information to their employees, especially when there are changes to equipment, materials, processes or rules. Promoting a healthy safety culture is an ongoing process that requires consistent communication of safety and health information.
