The written message in the form of information materials has long been a staple of the communication world. There are a number of ways to communicate risk via information materials, including newsletters; pamphlets, booklets, and fact sheets; posters, advertisements, and displays; articles in professional or trade journals, popular press magazines, blogs, and newspapers; and technical reports. This chapter provides specific advice on each of these types of information materials, focusing on how these materials differ from those used in other types of communication efforts. Whatever the form of the information material, those who are communicating risk must consider what information to include, how to organize messages, appropriate language, and the use of the narrative style. The chapter describes guidelines for some of the more commonly used types of information materials for communicating risk.
