· Communication should be clear and timely.
· Effective communication will ensure that employees understand their roles in safety.
· Employees will also understand their accountability (Pandit et al, 2019).
B. Employee to employer
· Employees will communicate any safety hazards as soon as they are identified.
· Employers will be able to act quickly to prevent damage from occurring (Pandit et al, 2019).
C. Trainer to the employees
· Employees will be able to identify hazards to burns and cuts safety.
· Employees will learn of the burns and cuts risks anticipating.
