I am part of a safety committee at my place of employment, and we have a safety fair coming up in January. We like to give away prizes and stuff… During our most recent meeting I suggested we give out yoyos… And the rest of the committee liked the idea!! We are in the process of securing funding for 400 yoyos, to be purchased through yoyoexpert. (I insisted on quality throws, not typical freebie junk and would like your help with ideas of how to tie industrial workplace safety into yoyos. So far my ideas are:
- banners and such with corny and not so corny vaguely yoyo related statements such as: A new spin on safety, safety has its ups and downs, tether your tools, etc…
- a challenge/ game featuring our give away yoyos: I’m thinking of having participants don excessive safety p.p.e. like thick gloves,hard hats, hearing protection, goggles and face shield, etc… And try to emulate very basic yoyo techniques with me in the same gear ( I gotta practice for this one)
I would love your input on the quotes/phrases and alternative suggestions for the challenge, as my idea is pretty weak.
Your suggestions will help us build buy in for our funding request. We can’t just ask for 3g’s to give away yoyos and expect to get it, we have got to incoporate the yoyos into our safety message…
Any ideas at all no matter how silly or minor are much appreciated!!!
