MARCOM Group Ltd., The Description:
MARCOM's "Safety Orientation" Videotape Program addresses two of the most prominent safety issues confronting employers today, that of developing a good "safety attitude" in their employees...as well as providing "introductory safety training". Thinking about safety should be as natural as thinking about other aspects of the job. Employees need to anticipate the possibility of accidents before they happen. Workplace accidents cause millions of people to suffer painful injuries every year, and cost business almost $90 billion per year in medical bills, lost wages and lost production time.
The Videotape and includes information on developing "safety awareness", basics of accident prevention, hazard evaluation, safety housekeeping, tool use and maintenance, use of personal protective equipment, and more. The Videotape Program comes with a comprehensive Leader's Guide, reproducible Scheduling & Attendance Form, Employee Quiz, Training Certificate and Training Log.Safety Orientation Video Excerpt:
When the day begins we all find lots of work to do. There are orders to fill, production quotas to meet, deadlines, deadlines, deadlines. After all time is money and someone is always watching the bottom line, but if we don’t work carefully the end result of our labor could be an accident, and perhaps a serious injury. Sure, we’ve got to get the job done, but the real bottom line is doing the job safely. That’s where the phrase ‘safety first’ comes into play. It means safety is the top priority, our main goal, the whole enchilada. We must learn to take precautions to prevent accidents, protect ourselves from hazards, and prepare for emergencies. Before you begin a task you must be mentally prepared for safety, no matter how simple or routine the job may seem. Concentration is the key. If you give the task your full attention you’re much less likely to make a mistake that causes an accident. Anger and frustration can cloud the mind and impair judgment. A decision made in the heat of the moment could have disastrous consequences. If you feel frustrated or angry, take a break. Step back and take a deep breath, or switch over to another task for awhile. You can resume work when you’re calm and in the right frame of mind.
