Health and Safety training videos are an ideal type of video production for sites that need to ensure their staff are up to date with the latest health and safety news. Training videos for health and safety may sound boring and uninteresting at first, but with the power of video production you can turn this content into something full of life, and engaging to watch.
Many companies find that health and safety video production used to highlight their key rules and regulations regarding health and safety in the workplace, is an ideal format. The great thing about video is the fact that it is a highly engaging medium to communicate this information, meaning it is more likely to resonate with your audience. Here are our top reasons as to why Health and Safety training videos could be a vital asset for your business:
- Video can be accessed anywhere, anytime. Those working in remote industrial facilities located in far flung areas or on shift work also need to be trained. Getting these staff into a workshop for a day to teach them about different types of safety content might not be an easy exercise. Simply sending them a copy of your video is a perfect solution to this, without you having to be there to train them. Think of it as your own digital tutor. Using a question and answer format alongside your video or some form of learning management system will ensure staff can be assessed.
- A video can easily solve problems with language barriers. A simple change in voice-over or on screen text can turn your video multi-lingual, meaning anyone speaking any different language can have their own version of your video that they can fully understand. This in turn makes your video cost efficient, as it means you don’t need pay to make multiple videos.
- Training someone with a video production can be more effective at showing just what needs to be taught to them than say, a written health and safety document. Showing something visual and real can highlight the dangers and risks with a lot more impact. Training videos featuring reconstruction video content can be used to help provide lessons learnt and reduce accidents and risks on site.
- A voice-over in your safety content is just as impactful as the video itself. Picking the most suitable voice that helps to represent your company is a must. This is especially key if those watching your video are new employees, as it will give them more of a sense of what your company is about. It beats reading the information off of a piece of paper when you have someone speaking to you – it almost feels like a conversation.
- Safety video production for site induction is a popular type of health and safety video. This video production 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.
- Industrial safety animation might be another area to consider. Animated formats in both 2D and 3D animation can be used to detail a variety of key health and safety training video topics. For example construction safety training videos, health and safety working from height videos or areas of manufacturing safety. Industrial safety animation is a service that we specialise in here at Shot Blast Media. Safety animation videos should be full of impact, using good storytelling techniques to take the audience on a journey so they can relate and connect with the content.
