Health And Safety Cartoons Get The Point Across
While the majority of people in a workplace understand that there is a need for health and safety, there is often an immediate turnoff when the term is brought up. There is now an almost blanking of the term, with many people equating to effectively banning the way that people used to work or carry out their activities. Things are not like the good old days but in many ways, they are for the better and the increase in health and safety is an important factor in improved working conditions.
The challenge for employers is to get the key points about health and safety across to their employees in the right manner. To engage with employees, the information can’t be boring or dull and yet, it has to get the relevant points across. This can be a tall order but if you need to ensure that your employees are on board for health and safety, there may be a way to do so effectively without breaking the bank.
To get a message across effectively, the message has to be delivered sharply, effectively and in a format that people will actually want to read. One of the best ways to deliver a health and safety message is through health and safety cartoons. Very few people are going to take the time to read pages of script telling them what they can and cannot do. However, if you provide employees with a few cartoon strips, either online or in paper format, you will find that the vast majority of employees will take the time to read it over.
Engagement is good but there needs to be more
This ensures that the first step in getting a positive health and safety message across to employees has been taken. Engagement is important but there is also a need to make sure that the message comes across. This is where it is of benefit to turn to a professional. Most workplaces will have someone with drawing talent but there is a need to be able to deliver a great or interesting illustration with a health and safety cartoon.
Health and safety cartoons needs to obvious, it needs to be immediate and it needs to be very clear in what it is saying.
This is why hiring the services of a cartoonist who has a great deal of experience in this area will be of benefit to any firm or business. With respect to value for money, the return that comes from using a professional in this field outstrips the value of using someone in-house who may not be able to get the right point across. This may create a funny cartoon or an illustration that is of high quality but with respect to the proper health and safety message, it will not be sufficient.
Companies need to work harder to get the message across…
Companies have legal and moral obligations to look after their employees and ensure that they have the knowledge and tools to work safely. Being able to provide tips and guidelines for working safely is a crucial element for all businesses. Anything which can help to reduce work based accidents or days off through injury are worth pursuing for a company.
This is why commissioning health and safety cartoons can pay for themselves.
Adding some light-hearted humour to the office or workplace is of benefit but it can also get the message across effectively. Sometimes when a firm comes on “heavy handed” with regards to information, people will deliberately turn away from the information. Providing a health and safety message that is funny but effective will keep the message light but will ensure it gets across.
Every business should have an interest in promoting health and safety. Commissioning health and safety cartoons or artwork should provide a value for money and effective way of getting your message across.

We’ve been losing two of every three games – that’s not acceptable. We haven’t been performing relative to our talent level. It became evident we needed to try something different. It wasn’t working. … We were underperforming.~ Dave Littlefield
“Practice as if you are the worst, perform as if you are the best.”
“Don’t lower your expectations to meet your performance. Raise your level of performance to meet your expectations. Expect the best of yourself, and then do what is necessary to make it a reality.”Ralph Marston
I love this quote from Rowan Atkinson after he attended the School Of Hard Knocks…
I, on the other hand, am a fully-rounded human being, with a degree from the University of Life, a diploma from the school of hard knocks, and three gold stars from the Kindergarten of Getting the sh*t Kicked Out of Me! ~ Rowan Atkinson

My apologies for this post – I aim to give you motivational cartoons but I just loved this ‘suck at golf’ article by Matt Canham, I could have drawn cartoons for each of the 20 reasons – hopefully any golfers out there will love it like I did!?
With carpet like fairways, majestic trees, manicured greens, and fluffy sand bunkers, the game of golf brings out feelings of tranquility, harmony, respect and tradition.
As a game once described by Winston Churchill as being "a game whose aim is to hit a very small ball into a even smaller hole, with weapons singularly ill-designed for the purpose," it also brings out swearing, frustration, increased blood pressure and shame.
For most of us, in spite of a life time of dedication to the golf range, the golf course, the golf channel and the assortment of golf magaines and gurus, we will still suck at it.
Here are the top 20 reasons why you also suck at golf.
1. You only ever hit a range ball on any hole with a water hazard.
2. You're used to hearing muffled laughter after teeing off on the 1st with people watching.
3. Your drives rarely pass the red ladies markers.
4. You think an 8 is a really good score.
5. You regularly need to repair divots after putting.
6. You still have a bright yellow or orange Top Flight golf ball in your bag.
7. You still have a pink lady golf ball in your bag.
8. You need to use your sand bucket to replace the hole you left in the bunker.
9. You have golf balls in your bag with red stripes on them.
10. You have a "magic pencil."
11. You searched for "Charles Barkley Golf swing" to get some tips.
12. You go to Yahoo answers to ask for golf swing advice.
13. You consider hitting the neighboring fairway to be a good thing.
14. You can accurately guess the age of a tree by the sound your ball makes hitting it.
15. Your score is higher than weight.
16. Your handicap and your score for 9 holes are roughly the same.
17. Your last name is Mulligan.
18. The temperature is the only thing about your score that will ever be in the 70s.
19. Your story of loss at the water hazard involves an entire set of golf clubs.
20. All the caddies scurry back into the caddyshack and hide when you arrive.
If any of these 20 reasons resonate, well then it’s official — you suck at golf.
