Health and Safety Videos

Shot Blast Media Eye Heading

Health and Safety videos now no longer need to be dull and uninspiring. With the advent of new technology, access to sites and new software – using health and safety animation and standard video techniques your video content can now be engaging! This means clearer communications providing greater awareness, less accidents, safer working practices and ultimately leading to a more motivated and effective workforce.

At Shot Blast Media we have a wealth of expertise and knowledge when it comes to producing bespoke communications that deliver various health and safety programmes and initiatives through. We have worked with a range of high hazard industries such as oil and gas, petrochemicals, hydroelectric, coal as well as large manufacturing, engineering site, quarries and railways.

In our experience established businesses will already have generic health and safety video content in place to cover office based staff and general safe practices. These topics could include manual handling, first aid, fire safety and food safety for example. These courses are designed to be very non specific in terms of site, people, skillset and procedures.

Bespoke health and safety video production will primarily focus on more specific health and safety content. These topics may include things like site safety induction videos, company life saving rules, process safety videos, permits to work, safe systems of work, contractor safety etc. Health and safety videos that are custom designed, provide an extra layer of safety communications to companies with site specific or procedure specific activity. They help to ensure people are aware of the site safety practices and rules, how to stay safe and how to work safely. These types of health and safety videos ultimately help to lower risk on site and reduce fatalities. They also provide a layer of protection for operators, contractors, staff and visitors to high hazard sites.

Some of the health and safety videos we’ve produced fall under the following topics.

Process Safety Videos

Process safety is a disciplined framework for managing the integrity of operating systems and processes that handle hazardous substances. Our video production work has focused generally on people, plant and processes ensuring best practice to keep the hazards contained within the system. Process safety videos are an important part of any company’s health and safety training program. These videos help to educate employees on the importance of following safety procedures and avoiding potential hazards.

Life Saving Rules Videos

2D animation is an effective way to communicate important health and safety information. It can be used to create engaging videos that teach people about life saving rules that they should follow in order to stay safe. Life saving rules focus on the golden rules for sites and ensure people get home safely each day. These rules will change from site to site depending on the major hazards and potential risks on a day to day basis. They may include guarding of machinery, isolation of plant and use of drugs and alcohol.

Boat Safety Explainer Videos

Boat safety is an important aspect of health and safety. To ensure that everyone on board is aware of the safety procedures, it is important to have an informative explainer video. Explainer videos can also be used to educate people on the proper procedures for operating boats, as well as how to identify potential hazards and risks while out on the water. By using 2D animation in explainer videos, boat safety information can be presented in a visually appealing way that will help viewers remember it more easily.

Plant Safety Induction Videos

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.

Confined Spaces Training Videos

Working in confined spaces can be a hazardous undertaking and it is important to ensure the safety of workers. A training video on confined spaces safety is an effective way to ensure that all personnel are aware of the potential dangers and know how to handle them. A 2D animation training video will cover all aspects of working in confined spaces, such as identifying hazards, assessing risks, selecting the appropriate protective equipment, and following safety protocols.

Working at Height Training Animations

Working at height is a dangerous task that requires proper training and safety precautions. To ensure the safety of workers, companies should provide training videos that explain the risks associated with working at heights and how to prevent them. The content of these training videos should cover topics such as safe access, use of equipment, personal protective equipment (PPE), risk assessment, emergency procedures and health & safety regulations.

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.
