Dynamic digital signage in factory represents a flexible and fast tool of communication. Further more, it can also automate the communication. Since the messages are easily modifiable, you can adapt them to the time of day, work shift, or the screen's location.

OHS prevention

Dynamic digital display can help your company improve its occupational health and safety (OHS) by displaying dynamic digital sign, prevention videos and important messages. You can:

  • Inform about risks and dangers.
  • Convey safety rules.

With a touch screen, you can signal sudden and temporary risks directly on the screen and quickly inform everyone of the danger. For example, if a worker sees an ice slick, he can immediately flag the danger on the screen to share the information with his colleagues.

Human resources communications

There is a lot of important information to communicate in factories, which is why there is often one or more bulletin boards. Those are overloaded.

With digital signage and a good content strategy, you can display your information attractively and efficiently:

  • Birthdays;
  • Upcoming events;
  • Union information;
  • Company history;
  • Internal culture;
  • The cafeteria's weekly menu.

Training

To ensure that your employees remember their last training properly, you can use digital display for simple reminders.

For more interactivity, it is also possible to setup touch screens so employees can receive training or consolidate their learning. For example, through videos that show how to use specific tools.

Communicate changes and spontaneous information

Communicating a change in a factory can be a perilous task for many reasons, since the following situations will probably happen:

  • Employees don't have access to their email;
  • Employees don't have access to phones;
  • Employees are not working the same shifts;
  • Employees are not looking at the bulletin board.

Poor communication leads to issues of efficiency and security. Incidentally, poor communication during a period of change tends to increase unwanted behaviors by 42%. [1] Dynamic digital can broadcast information quickly, visibly and instantly. You are certain that everyone is up to date and aware of the latest modifications to regulations and goals at the same time.

Finally, dynamic digital signage simplifies and reinforces your communications.
