Conducting safety meetings is a very efficient and an easy way to provide safety information to the employees of an organization or residents of a particular area or group. These are generally more effective when held in an informal group without full-scale meetings which includes slides, charts, and graphs as it allows participants to share their real-time experiences relevant and beneficial for all.
Safety Meetings
If these meetings are presented in an effective manner, the presenter should be able to grab a listener's attention as he will be providing information that will be beneficial to the participants. The presenter should be clear, concise and crisp discussing only a handful of topics at a time. The meeting should end with the presenter revising all the main points in the meeting.
While choosing safety meeting topics, it is important to know the target audience well. When I say this, I mean that the presenter should have a fair idea about the participants and why they need to attend a particular session. For example, a safety meeting conducted for housewives with the topic 'welding hazards' will be of little use. Whereas, if the same meeting is conducted with the topic as 'safety precautions to be taken during blackouts', the meeting will be far more successful and will be very useful to women.
At the work place, I have often noticed that employees tend to get careless about safety and feel that safety meetings are a waste of time. It is imperative that they are forced to attend these meetings as even if they do not acknowledge the advice that is imparted to them during these meetings, they will be aware of the protocol in cases of exigencies. An excellent way to ensure that all employees attend the safety meetings is by making it a mandatory activity.

For safety meetings to be truly successful, it is imperative that these meetings are held on a regular basis so that updated information is constantly circulated and the individual is always on the alert. Also, the topics of the meeting can be recycled annually or as per the needs of an organization or residential society or group. A little bit of alertness on everybody's part will go a long way in ensuring safety of the individual and the society in general.
