Safety Messages – How can we make them Stick. Why can everyone remember that urban legend, a rumor, or a story told over a couple of drinks, but walk out of a safety meeting and not remember the topics discussed that day. As Safety Professionals we communicate in a variety of ways and at times struggle with why our communications did not get attention, resonate, or get the message across like we expected. The concepts that will be discussed in this session are the stickiness factors – simple, unexpected, concrete, credible, emotional and stories.

The concepts that will be discussed in this session are the stickiness factors – simple, unexpected, concrete, credible, emotional and stories. If you make use of these traits in your safety communications of all types you can make your ideas, messages, and information sticker and affect the change that you are looking for.
In association with HFESA, the SIA invite you to participate in the following conference workshop titled: Transforming your approach to investigating patient handling injuries: the PHIRES toolkit
About the workshop:
Patient handling tasks continue to cause a significant number of injuries within Australian hospitals, despite a substantial investment in equipment, training and workspace design. This presentation will introduce a new investigation toolkit that has been developed to support this process, underpinned by systems thinking. The toolkit is designed to help OHS practitioners investigate why the risk controls for a patient handling task failed to prevent an injury to staff, and then identify effective strategies to prevent future similar injuries and improve safety overall.
During the workshop, you will discover:
• Why systems thinking is required to prevent patient handling injuries;
• How to use systems thinking to analyse patient handling injuries; and
• How to practically apply the PHIRES Toolkit in your workplace.
