A Step by Step Guide to Writing Effective Visual Work Instructions

Why do you need visual work instructions?

Work instructions are the most crucial yet often overlooked part of your workers’ training. 

Whether it’s about familiarizing new employees with your company’s policies to training them on how to operate a forklift – work instructions come in handy.

Though in name of work instructions, most organizations fall into the pit of endless paper-based notes.

Result?  Inconsistent work instructions that take ages to create or update and never end up getting used.

That’s when visual work instructions [vwi] can come to your rescue. Easy-to-create work instructions that instead of telling your workers how to perform a job, show them how to do it.
