Better Writing for Better EHS

Good business writing is essential to an effective EHS program. Here are some examples:

  • A report to upper management justifying the need for a significant expenditure on additional controls.
  • A policy statement on zero-tolerance of workplace violence, sexual harassment or bullying.
  • A white paper discussing problematic safety areas, possible solutions, and recommendations.
  • An email to managers and supervisors outlining the new EHS protocols.
  • A Google Doc soliciting input from workers on noise hazards in which all department heads are contributing to the content.
  • A message to all workers about the need for consistent use of PPE.

Whether you’re writing an email, report, internal training document, or pitch—the ability to communicate a message effectively through writing is an essential business skill.

In this course, you’ll learn how to define your writing goals, analyze your audience, and choose the best medium for your message. You’ll then explore techniques for structuring your writing—and editing and proofreading your work. Finally, take your writing style to the next level with tips to ensure that it’s clear, concise, and courteous.
