Likewise, in technical writing, the subject matter often calls for warnings and cautions. We need to know the distinction between them and how to write them effectively.
– A Warning explains dangers that might result in personal injury or death.
– A Caution explains hazards that could damage a product, including data loss.
If both results are possible, a warning takes precedence.
To write a warning or caution:
– Start with a simple, clear command.
– Write to the intended audience, for example a machine operator or a maintenance technician.
– Choose your words to be specific, leaving nothing to uncertainty.
– It might be necessary to add an explanation to make the risks clear. This will make the warning or caution longer, but more effective.
– If conditions are necessary before starting a procedure, list the conditions first.
