Humor helps a workplace keep problems under control, explains speaker and author Michael Kerr. It is also a great tool for making safety messages stand out from the crowd.
Humor keeps employees aware of the safety messages at hand, while also serving as a reframing tool that allows employees to see safety messages in a new light. Humor helps a workplace maintain control by lowering workplace stress levels, notes MikeKerr.com, a website dedicated to energizing the workplace through humor. Rather than trivializing a message that should be serious, a carefully worded but humorous safety message adds levity and lightens up the workspace.
