Top Tips on Site Safety Induction Videos

Site safety induction is a critical and key part for any business especially those that have factories, sites, power generation, manufacturing and engineering facilities. Safety is absolutely paramount. Most people on site will be aware of specific PPE that they have to wear but one of the biggest challenges for companies is how can they engage their staff, their visitors and contractors in key health and safety information. Engaging content is absolutely key. If you want those accidents and incidents to reduce on-site you've got to get people engaged with your program, so you've really got to think about your content. How you make it appealing to watch and how you break it down into small bite-sized chunks of information so that people can go away with all the key themes, understand what they're doing and feel well-informed. Muster points, emergency procedures, specialist operations for contractors that are coming into site - this is the kind of information that should be contained in your induction program. You could include drone work for example that might dictate site layouts. You could have some animation sequences in there that sort of mix the content up a bit as well as filmed content and possibly some reconstruction content. All of these ideas are different ways of tackling different types of footage that could go in your site induction program. An induction program in this format can be utilised time and time and time again. Of course if it's produced in a way [...]

The Invisible Man and Artemis Fowl: Should films divert from their source material?

Have you seen The Invisible Man yet? Leigh Whannell's new take on the iconic character has audiences and critics alike buzzing with excitement and positive reviews. The film is a fully fledged psychological horror, a big departure from the original story by H.G Wells. It's very much it's own thing, really just taking the name from the book and the character but turning them into something really quite different. However, with this brilliant feedback in mind, the new Artemis Fowl film trailer was released this week, and fans aren't happy due to the beloved and titular character from the book series turning into a superhero, rather than evil genius that he is in the books. It got us thinking... where is the line? With one remake taking such a shift and changing everything getting glowing praise, and then another adaptation doing the same thing but fans hate it. It's an interesting topic, and we thought we'd delve a little deeper into it. So why did The Invisible Man, a film that shifted everything about the original story for a new take in the new movie, do so well? It's very much down to a lot of things. You see, The Invisible Man is a total reimagining of the story, shifting just about everything. Now taking place in a modern setting, today's technology plays a large part in the film, and as well as that it tackles relevant issues of today - including a very well represented case of domestic abuse. It feels [...]
