Safety Videos FAQs
What is a safety video?
Safety videos are pre-recorded training videos that cover workplace health and safety topics. They aim to reduce the risk of harm to staff and clients in the workplace by educating staff about potential hazards.
What are examples of safety programs?
Safety programs vary by industry, but common examples include Health and Safety Fundamentals, First Aid and Mental Health First Aid, Risk Management (Construction Specific), Asbestos and Silica Awareness Training, Hazardous Chemicals, Working at Heights or Fall Prevention, Awareness around Mobile Plant, Driving hazards, Contact with Electricity, Working with Fixed Plant and Confined Spaces Training to name a few.
How do you make a good safety training video?
A good safety training video is one that is clear, concise, and memorable. There’s no room for misinterpretation when it comes to safety procedures. Understanding the risks and aiding prevention is what powerful Safety Videos can provide. We encourage the viewer to ask, what am I doing? what can go wrong? how can I do it safer? Taking five minutes of thought prior to starting a task can save a life.
What should a safety program include?
A safety program should explain how to recognise hazards, how to reduce the risk of harm, understand and ensure the right controls are in place and advise on what to do if an accident does occur. It should cover situations that are likely to happen in the workplace, for example how to avoid injury when lifting heavy items, or how to use certain equipment or machinery.
The great benefit to safety training is consistency – ensuring everyone receives the same message on basic safety requirements (such as knowing the right PPE for the task) as well as specialised safety training (having the correct licence to operate certain machinery and being competent when undertaking critical risk activities).
