Video ID: 1625 Minutes: 16 Date: 2007 Language(s): English / Spanish
Description: In this 16 minute safety presentation, children use common excuses not to wear safety gear: It's uncomfortable, Don't worry, nothing will happen to me, etc. Of course, the parents do not give in to these childish excuses and explain to their children why safety rules must be followed. But when the kids discover their parents using those same childish excuses at work, they wonder how their parents' attitudes would change if their children were to come to work with them.

As each child begins to perform the same job tasks as their parents, the adults' safety attitudes quickly change, explaining how important workplace safety is and insisting that the children follow procedures and wear proper protective equipment.

The children then drive home the point that the adults should protect themselves at work with the same passion with which they would protect their child. They also explain that the adults should be just as quick to stop an adult co-worker from committing the same types of unsafe acts, "because everybody is somebody's child."

Video ID: 1629 Minutes: 17 Date: 2013 Language(s): English / Spanish
Description: While there are countless methods used to protect workers from injury, each method shares a common root. The genesis of all injury prevention methods is an understanding and awareness of the hazards to which a worker may be exposed. In other words, the company and the worker must be aware of a hazard before that hazard can be controlled. This program discusses the important roles played by both management and employees in recognizing and controlling workplace hazards and how this shared duty of safety awareness and hazard recognition helps prevent injury.

Detailed in this 17 minute video, is the process of developing a successful job safety analysis, including the sequence of dividing a job into steps, analyzing those steps for hazards and creating control measures for each step. In addition to safety awareness and hazard recognition, the concept of situational awareness is explained and what corrective actions we can take when we notice signs and symptoms of loss of awareness.

Video ID: 1624 Minutes: 19 Date: 2012 Language(s): English
Description: People assume that workers will choose to work safely simply because they don't want to get hurt. Unfortunately, our decision-making process isn't that simple. This program, hosted by safety professional Tom Harvey, uses common examples, reenactments and a little humor to explain how humans are tempted to make unsafe choices by succumbing to the instant gratification of shortcuts, risk-taking and peer pressure.

This 19 minute program explains how our safety decision-making process works and provides tips and techniques we can use to overcome our human nature and make safe choices rather than unsafe ones.

Topics include why working safely goes against human nature, factors that influence the decision-making process, how outcomes of our actions affect future decisions, the concept of "normalized deviation" and creating a positive safety culture by offering and accepting safety feedback.
