Health and Safety Training Videos

Shot Blast Media Eye Heading

Health and safety training videos are a key part of health and safety communications. Videos combined with posters, toolbox talks, site inductions, health and safety ambassadors, questionnaires all form part of a robust health and safety programme on site.

The HSE has a variety of general health and safety videos, aimed at covering general topics such as manual handling, driving safety and safe systems of work. These provide a high level overview which can sometimes be an advantage for some sites.

Most sites however will have their own custom systems of work and safety rules, so we aim to produce bespoke health and safety videos for businesses that are modern, up to date and like to keep staff and contractors engaged in health and safety messaging. From our experience companies that provide consistent and regular health and safety video content benefit from higher retention levels in safety information and overall general engagement. Ultimately this leads to fewer accidents and incidents and more efficient ways of working.

Health and safety training videos can be managed in small bitesize topics tackling a particular theme or area of safety. Here are some examples.

Health and Safety Induction Video

This video production is probably the most popular type of health and safety video. This video is used for sites when they want to detail key bits of information for staff, contractors and visitors attending a site. Health and safety induction videos can be produced in many formats. Some focus on information that is presented in standard site manuals such as emergency procedures, muster points, fire alarm tests, working processes and procedures and so on. Other health and safety induction videos will focus on specific themes that need to be presented to contractors before working on site, for example working at height videos or safety rules videos.

Confined Spaces Training Video

Confined spaces is a key area of training for industrial companies that require staff and contractors to work within a confined space. Confined spaces videos can provide information such as statutory legislation, safety rules and procedures for managing safe work in confined spaces. Health and safety videos like these should also refer to the role and duties of appointed personnel that will allow staff and contractors to risk assess confined spaces and to develop, communicate and manage safe work, and appropriate emergency procedures.

Working at Height Training Video

Working at height is another area of health and safety training which is key for a lot of industrial companies. Training videos like these should cover all the potential risks of working at height and detail when working at height can ultimately be avoided. The video should outline key prevention methods and detail the type of equipment to be used where the risk cannot be eliminated. Other things such as weather and other personnel should be detailed to provide a through safety training video.

Plant Safety Training

Plant Safety Training Video

Plant safety induction videos are an important part of any industrial workplace. They provide employees with essential information on how to stay safe while working in a plant environment. 3D animation is a great way to create these videos as it allows for the visualisation of complex concepts and processes in an engaging and interactive manner. It can also be used to show potential hazards in a realistic way, which helps employees understand the risks associated with their job.

Frequently Asked Questions

This is all very dependent on what type of video you want. Do you want a video production, a 2D or 3D animated training video? All three forms are well suited to safety videos but cost can vary depending on what you want and what methods may be best for what you want to say.

Health and safety induction video is so important as it integrates new employees into the company. It’s important so that they can quickly understand the new systems and procedures and it gives them a senses of belonging. It’s also important for the business to communicate key information and ensure their new staff and contractors get their questions answered. This will ensure the business is compliant and that staff stay within the business for the months and years to come. Good inductions can be delivered via video training, or in face to face or group settings.

Site safety induction and training videos are used for sites when they want to detail key bits of information for staff, contractors and visitors attending a site. 2D animated content for health and safety video topics such as confined spaces, working at height and life saving rules refreshes and brings very important messaging to life. Information presented in this style is simple but very effective.

A health and safety induction should include a number of different things. Firstly it should outline all the key information that is detailed within the companies Health and Safety policy. This might include things such as Accident reporting, fire evacuation procedures, First aid arrangements, key welfare locations, Prohibited areas, site safety rules and potential risks and hazards on site.

Health and Safety videos can be just as effective in any video format, some need to be told in certain ways to make their messaging get across properly to the audience. For example live action may work better for accident reconstruction or communicating a first account of something. Site safety induction videos can be produced in animation and live action filming. Topics that are complex to understand may benefit from being broken down into smaller bitesize topics communicated possibly through animation.

Video itself is a very engaging way of getting health and safety information across than reading materials or powerpoint presentations. In animation for example, the use of colour and characters can appeal to your audience’s senses more positively and hook them in. Using people in the film too can create content that is relatable and personable to that site or company which often creates much higher levels of engagement than written material with no story.

There are many ways to promote a safety culture at work. Training is an obvious one. Rewarding people for safe behaviours. Using safety champions to filter messages & build a safety culture. Video tools including interactive video. Posters and signage. Staff intranet. Tool box talk meetings. Encourage feedback and discussion. Workplace risk assessments. Investigating accidents an incidents looking at root causes. The key thing that connects everything is good communication, that’s clear, simple and easy to understand.

Safety videos are becoming more and more popular for companies to use as video communications become more and more relevant, especially in the case of evolving health and safety communications.

Site safety rules are the key important steps that staff and contractors MUST pay attention to and follow whilst on site. They should be simple, clear and easy to understand and communicated to everyone attending site. Site safety rules videos and posters are a great way to capture people’s attention and engage them in the safety messages. The details of the rules should be communicated in inductions, safety talks and meetings.
