Safety Haiku Celebration

let blossoms inspire/health and safety words spring forth/your winning haiku

May 7-13 is National Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week, CCHSA is hosting its first ever SAFETY HAIKU celebration!   A Haiku is a 3-line poem with a set number of syllables in each line: 5/7/5.  For example:

 in traffic, honking

now who will give the finger?

should have used the guards


big skull and crossbones

bad for pests and you, so don

a respirator 

Writing a Haiku about safety is a great way to get us thinking creatively about safety and use the right side of our brains.  You can put yours in the comments.  🙂
