Funny Safety Slogans

Humor can be a good way to communicate in a memorable way. But humor needs to be use appropriately.  The goal isn't to be funny, the goal is to deliver a memorable safety message. For example, while this safety slogan might seem to be clever, is it really an effective safety slogan?

Where there isn’t any joy or fun, a safety day has just begun.

Having a funny safety slogan is not the goal. Having a memorable safety slogan, that helps people remember what they need to do to be safe, is the goal. Sometimes a funny safety slogan can accomplish that:

While on a ladder, never step back to admire your work.

This safety slogan brings up a vision of falling off a ladder, something none of us want to do. It can be effective in reminding people to be safe while using a ladder.

Safety slogans should never be insulting. While funny safety slogans can help people be aware of safety, insulting an individual or group of people is counterproductive.  Instead of improving safety, it isolates and humiliates people.  Also, stay away from any slogan that might be considered sexual harassment or supportive of sexual harassment.

Don't watch her behind. Keep safety in mind!

This is not a good safety slogan.  Remember, humor can be dangerous. What one person thinks is humors another takes as a grave insult.

A spill, a slip, a hospital trip

This is a good safety slogan. It is a poem that rhymes and it has a touch of humor.  That makes it memorable.  It also delivers a message that is memorable because a hospital trip, resulting from a fall or slip, is something we definitely want to avoid.

When you need to make signs or labels with safety slogans, then a DuraLabel custom label printer is the tool you need.  DuraLabel printers and supplies make effective, long-lasting signs and labels -- they are the ONLY signs and labels that come with a five year warranty.  Call 1-888-326-9244 today and ask about DuraLabel Safety Sign kits.  You'll be glad you did.
