Ministerie van Huh? Safety and language in the workplace

For people that are functionally illiterate, it can be difficult to participate in society. The problem is often directed back at the person involved. The Ministerie van Huh (Ministry of Huh) takes a different approach; functional illiteracy as an organisational problem. What can organisations do, to limit the consequences of functional illiteracy?

For manufacturing and logistic organisations, safety is essential for its employees. But it’s not the regulations and protocols making the work safer. It’s the organisations and companies that know how to translate it to their staff. How do you know they really understood the message? Do you train knowledge or behaviour and how? How do you make visual translations and do they make sense to everyone?

With the new programme ‘Huh, wat bedoelt u’ (Huh, what do you mean), Breda offers resilience to all those that are functionally illiterate. Four in-depth workshops closely examine the combination of functional illiteracy with legal jargon, visual language, customer service and safety. During these workshops, participants will share their experiences and experts will shed light on the topic. People that are functionally illiterate will give their feedback. The acquired knowledge and experiences will be incorporated into the ‘Huh, wat bedoelt u’ programme.

This workshop is fully booked!
