Deciding how to communicate needs a little bit of thought, will the communiqué be clearly understood by all staff or will different languages need to be considered for foreign nationals and seasonal workers, where written communications may not always be the most appropriate method?  The level of detail also needs to be considered, typically technical, skilled staff and middle to lower management will require more detailed communications, whereas higher management and general workers may require no more than an appraised version.  However the organization decides to communicate it needs to be consistent in its delivery and methodology to achieve homogeneous and logical results.

 

Some methods of internal communications could include:

 

Memos,

Presentations,

Newsletters,

Posters,

Notice boards,

Suggestion box,

Meetings, (management, safety, quality, reviews etc)

Toolbox Talks,

Training Courses,

Site inductions,

Briefings,

Focus groups,

E-mails,

Faxes,

However the organizations decides to manage its internal OH&S communications there needs to be a degree of evidence its actually happening retained documented information.
