Create Your Own Slogans
Need a safety slogan for something specific? Try making up one of your own. Here are a few tips:
- Keep your slogans relatively short so they are easier to remember.
- Keep the slogan tightly focused on the issue you want to address.
- Try to incorporate rhyming into your slogan. Verses tend to stick in people’s heads.
- Create an acronym. One example is “Get in STEP = S afety T akes E ach P erson.” By using the first letter of each word in the slogan, you get a simple word (STEP) that helps you remember the phrase.
- Hold a family contest to create a slogan. Whoever comes up with the best slogan gets a prize, such as choosing a favorite dinner or being able to eat a favorite dessert.
- Teachers can work together with principals or school administration to have students make up safety slogans for schools. This can be a school-wide or district-wide event.
Put Those Slogans into Practice
A slogan by itself won’t keep anyone safe. Everyone has to take the message to heart and practice what it says. Maybe you can’t control someone else’s actions, but you can control your own. Put some of these slogans to work in your own life and become a good example for others.
