Mimes Used To Promote Workplace Safety

This report comes from the Halifax News in Nova Scotia. I've seen a lot of creative ways to promote workplace safety in Canada, and this safety campaign from Canadian Workers’ Compensation Board is... well, it's creative.

The campaign is called "Silence Doesn’t Work Here," and it uses mimes to represent the dangers of not speaking out against workplace safety hazards.

The article quotes Shelley Rowan, Vice President of Strategy and Employee Engagement, "The idea came from the thought that when people don’t talk about workplace safety, people can get hurt. Mimes are the epitome of silence, yet have such a strong message."

Read the entire article here (and see a picture of a mime in action). Or visit the Silence Does Not Work Here web site.
