For decades, the concept of visual literacy has been used in developing better teaching and learning techniques in the classroom. Recently, visual literacy has been gaining traction in the workplace as a skill and tool to identify occupational hazards that could lead to safety incidents. This presentation will provide the results of a new research collaboration between the Campbell Institute and the Toledo Museum of Art to demonstrate how visual literacy relates to occupational safety. The argument we will present is relatively straight forward. Being more visually literate allows individuals to perceive and understand more about their work environment, enable them to see hazards and imagine the potential consequences that can result from those hazards. Having this heightened ability enables workers to be proactive about their work environment and take measures to mitigate hazards before they can cause an incident.
Presenters: Joy Inouye, John Dony, Campbell Institute - National Safety Council.
