Great Safety REQUIRES Great Communication – Know the Model & Use It!



One of the critical keys to communication is engagement. Trouble is much, of safety communication doesn’t fit the classic communication model and is done TO people not WITH them. This all too common flaw is why I wrote my book “How to Hold GREAT Safety Meetings – These meetings don’t suck anymore!” Far too many meetings are not meetings at all but one way delivery sessions in very unengaging ways.
In the classic communication model (see the model above), engagement through feedback is essential. People engage if engaged…the logic is overwhelming!

Chances are good that your last safety meeting wasn’t outstanding, awesome or fabulous. There’s a very good chance that you would NOT describe it as the “best meeting you’ve ever attended”. Well, you’re not alone.

The overwhelming majority of people when asked say that their safety meetings fall very short of these descriptions. In fact, some describe their safety meetings as some of the absolute worst they have had to attend.

These “bad meetings” are all too common. They are a function of well-meaning people, wanting to make it safe where they work, but just not knowing how to hold a GREAT safety meeting.

There are ways to have Great Safety Meetings. Meetings that people want to go to. Meetings that get things accomplished and have the participants feel good because these meetings were a good use of their time and effort. It’s going to take some reflection; a bit of hard work and some trial and error but your organization can start having GREAT safety meetings.

If you think we don’t need help with our meetings…then why are these quotes so painfully funny?

“If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be “meetings” –  Dave Barry

“I am prepared to meet anyone, but whether anyone is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter.” – Mark Twain

“People who enjoy meetings should not be in charge of anything.” – Thomas Sowell
