Health and safety is a general set of guidelines and procedures put in place to ensure that a company and its workers follow the rules provided by the occupational health and safety act of 1993.
The safety and well being of the company and its employees depend on thorough health and safety training as well as continued adherence.
Complete health and safety training is integral to the safety and well being of your employees.
These guidelines provide employees with in-depth information on how to operate and proceed while fulfilling their daily duties in a way that promotes safety not only for themselves but for their fellow employees as well.
Through health and safety training you are able to protect your employees from injury, illness or distress. A Safe Workplace is a happy workplace, as well as a legal one. If your company does not comply with the occupational health and safety act of 1993 you will be liable for prosecutions, fines, loss of business or even imprisonment.
A Health and safety plan is a detailed document that lists the potential hazards posed by your company’s facilities and equipment as well as the procedures meant to prevent and mitigate injury, illness or distress caused by these hazards.
Having a full health and safety plan is integral to ensuring that your employees are safe within the workplace.
Health and safety video production is a specialised skill that requires an experienced supplier. Experienced suppliers will ensure that the content produced is in line with legal and industry standards.
Content produced by experienced suppliers will ensure thorough training of your employees, Contractors and Visitors leading to a safer workplace for all.
A competent health and safety video production company should be able to supply you with a well thought out health and safety checklist.
Once the checklist is completed it will be used in conjunction with your health and safety plan to assist you in creating a comprehensive health and safety video, that covers every aspect of health and safety that a visitor, contractor or employee might encounter while on site.
When your preferred health and safety video production company starts the scriptwriting process, it is important to communicate the type of health and safety video that you are aiming to produce.
This will ensure that the information provided is direct and applicable to the environments the above individuals may come into contact with.
Once a script, a checklist and a health and safety plan has been produced you can use all of these tools to produce a detailed shot list.
This will ensure that your video captures each aspect of the health and safety process clearly which leads to better training.
Ensuring that the site is cleaned, packed neatly and prepared for the health and safety video production project will warrant effective filming, free of unnecessary delays or additional filming days.
Ensure that the correct signage is up and that PPE is freely accessible where required.
Ensure that your team is fully briefed before the shoot day and that they are aware of the proceedings for the day.
When a team is properly prepared, filming can proceed in a manner that is effective and free of mistakes. Incorrect PPE or procedures could result in reshooting or film delays.
The shoot day will follow the shot list and checklist religiously ensuring that everything regarding the health and safety process is covered.
The client should ensure that sufficient, clean and usable PPE is available to all employees and individuals appearing in the video.
After filming has been concluded, ensure that the health and safety video production supplier has access to your branding documentation or company corporate identity this will ensure that the editing style follows your company’s brand guidelines.
After the first draft has been completed it will be sent through to the client for review.
Once the client has reviewed the first draft the changes will be applied and reworked to adhere to the client’s needs.
This process could be repeated up to three times to ensure that the fourth and final draft is in line with the client’s vision and health and safety compliance needs.
Once the final video has been produced you may start your relevant induction training.
Make note of employee, visitor and contractor feedback to ensure that your video is clear and covers all of the necessary health and safety procedures.
As an experienced health and safety video production company, we keep a catalogue of footage, designs and working files used to produce your video.
This means that as your company grows or changes we are able to film the segments and easily add them to your existing health and safety video.
