Site safety induction video is a crucial exercise for all companies to help keep staff, contractors and visitors safe and educated on the potential risks and hazards on site. Health and Safety induction videos are a great way to educate and inform staff of the safe working procedures and how to take necessary precautions in the event of an incident. Video training is ideal for new starters to guide them through the induction process and orientation of a new site environment.

The challenges of health and safety at the workplace.

Most people will know the basics of what they need to do to stay safe, such as wearing PPE and looking out for their own safety as well as others. The main challenge faced by organisations is engaging their audiences to focus on particular safety issues or topics. Some of these topics may include behavioural safety, process safety, general health and safety, fire safety and so on. Many organisations may have toolbox talks, posters and newsletters in place to communicate these strands of safety but this can only reach a limited audience and engagement tends to be low.

It is important that health and safety induction training concentrates on the key information for the site. Content to consider could include:

  • Emergency procedures and evacuation.
  • Site layout and safe zones
  • Key personnel
  • Site risks and hazards
  • Job specific safety

The content should include what is expected of new employees and what the are likely to encounter within the early days of working within a new organisation. Health and safety training should be integrated within all general induction material so it’s clear that safety is a top priority for that organisation.

How to make health and safety induction training engaging.

The best training is delivered in small bitesize pieces of information. That way individual can absorb the main key points and retain what they have learnt. It’s important that individuals are not overloaded with too much information so induction programmes should be short or broken down into smaller topics. Using a variety of mixed media from film to animation will keep the content interesting. The use of storytelling, demonstrations and reconstructions are a good format to consider to keep participants entertained.

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.

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.
