Safety & Health Technical Report Writing (2 Days Training)
- May 7 – 8, 2018
- X-Limit Learning Hub (CMCT's Training Centre)
Technical reports are your company’s main tool to enable and support critical decision-making. If you are proposing a course of action – either within your company or to an interested party – the report you write will be its best advocate.
The result is that, too often, technical writing has a flat style making documents difficult and tedious to read. Complex writing results in a waste of time, lost contracts and alienated customers – in other words, a loss of money.
It takes a lot of skill to communicate technical or commercial information efficiently and accurately. This course encourages writers to be efficient and logical in their use of words, ensuring that the purpose of each component is understood and achieved.
Besides, this course contains workshop, which focuses on the real challenge – to express complex ideas simply. This entails anticipating the needs of readers and supplying whatever context may be needed to understand the meaning, relevance and importance of what is written. It concentrates exclusively on the skills you need to make the writing process easier and the resulting document more effective.
