Creating a Cartoon

    philosophies

    sledgehammer-like?

Using Cartoons in the Workplace an example
New email policies were implemented at a
previous employer. The initial response from the
employees was that the policies were very strict,
harsh, a restriction of civil liberties. The
guidelines for the use of email were much tighter
than they had been and those caught breaching the
policies were severely reprimanded. Management
knew the workforce would be unhappy, and in an
attempt to make light of the situation and show
that they too understood and empathized with the
workforce, a cartoon was suggested to create a
connection between management and the employees.

Example Brainstorming Session
  • The email policies are now much more strict, what
    else is strict?
  • The law
  • Policemen
  • Courts
  • What happens when people break strict laws? The
    go to jail
  • Ah HA!
  • And the following cartoon was created from this
    idea

Your task
  • The OHS department are releasing a email
    communication to send out to the rest f the
    business and want to attach a cartoon to break
    the seriousness of the message. It is your job
    (in small groups) to create a cartoon to be
    attached with the communication.
  • Idea starters.
  • What is OH S?
  • What do they do?
  • What would be the opposite of what they do and
    how could you do a cartoon that would have an OH
    S spin?
  • (Slipping/falling / dropping things on yourself
    for comedic purposes is always funny, see the
    Coyote and Road Runner as examples)
  • Are there any plays-on-words in OH S that you
    could use?
  • (e.g. bear / bare you could have a grizzly bear
    carrying a pot of acid and the OHS worker scolds
    him for carrying the liquid with his bear
    hands)
