Harmony Gold used comics to effectively engage their site workers. They communicated important messages such as Rigging Safety and Tramming Safety. These Safety Comics were translated into isiXhosa, Sesotho and Setswana.
For Gammon Construction, we created both Cantonese and English safety comics.
For Leighton Asia, we created powerful comics to improve safety for the site workers – from Working at Height to Lifting Operations.
Taking our client’s content, our specialised HSE writers craft stories around these topics. Our artists illustrate the comics and create specific characters to make it more relatable for the reader.
Frequently asked questions
What makes a Safety Comic so effective?
Workers with low literacy levels can understand the content because safety comics make use of simple language and illustrations.
Because there are often the heroes and characters in the comics, they are able to relate to the comics and thus are more willing to engage with the content.
Comics are extremely expressive and visually stimulating so workers are more likely to read the information in comic form than a text-heavy document.
Reading comics has been proven to reduce stress for workers - the comics often lead to laughter and positive thoughts.
Lastly, comics are able to communicate frightening subjects in a very matter-of-fact and non-threatening way.
Safety Comics solve the many communication challenges and enable workers to engage with critical instructions.
