"Strengthen Your Safety Program With a Better Communication Strategy"

Join us for the Safety Council September Webinar featuring: Katie Woodhall and Ami Gignac, Sparrow Tale.

Need to make your safety program more accessible and easier to digest? Maybe, you don't need to change your safety program, but rather find a better way to communicate it.  During this webinar you will learn how to:

  • Strip down the meetings and verbiage to what needs to be said 
  • Create an environment where employees are encouraged to participate
  • Couple your safety program with a clear and concise communication strategy

Front line workers and middle managers are the foundation of any safety program. They complete the majority of work and communicate expectations.  However, they are only as successful as the support they receive. Explore ways your business can strengthen its safety program with simple solutions to your communication strategy and style.

Cost: FREE, but please register by Monday, Sept. 28 at 5 p.m.


The Ohio BWC has asked all Ohio Safety Councils to conduct all meetings virtually (online only) until July 2021. Each FREE, live webinar will feature dynamic speakers followed by a short Q&A session.

You do not need to be a Stark County Safety Council member to attend. ALL are welcome!
