Workers walking up a gangplank

Businesses are re-opening, Covid-19 restrictions are decreasing but have not been eliminated. Now more than ever, it is crucial that we increase Covid-19 safety compliance with communication and messaging targeted at young adults due to increased complacency after vaccinations and restrictions are relaxed.

  • Mask Wearing: Adhere to mask wearing
  • Other Public Health Measures: Comply with other protective measures, such as avoiding groups, coughing or sneezing into one’s elbow, and washing one’s hands regularly

Covid strategies to increase compliance among young adults AND new workers:


REFRESH COMMUNICATIONS AND MESSAGING:

Consider the use of different key messages, tone, and delivery i.e. With all the extra hand washing – poster enclosed on how to conserve water when washing hands  from the W.H.O.

    • should be clear, accessible, motivational AND positive
    • outline the consequences of not complying to public health measures

HELP YOUNG & NEW WORKERS REMEMBER – SAFETY FIRST:
