Originally Presented on Thursday, August 23rd by: Clayton Sinyai, Communications Research Manager, CPWR
Are your construction safety and health handouts and training materials getting the point across to your readers? CPWR – The Center for Construction Research and Training has used lessons from health communications experts to review more than 100 handouts, brochures and pamphlets used in construction safety and health training around the country to identify good and bad practices – and tested these with hundreds of construction apprentices and journeymen. In this 30 minute webinar followed by Q&A, CPWR Communications Research Manager Clayton Sinyai will present the results of the study, then share tips you can use to select the right materials for YOUR audience – or to prepare your own.
Resources to Improve Your OSH Training Materials (mentioned during webinar):
- Readability Calculators (Here’s one)
- The CDC Clear Communication Index ()
- Everyday Words for Public Health Communication
- Clear Writing for a Construction Audience
- Testing with your intended audience!
