Best Safety Training Video Ever!

Undoubtedly, the Best Safety Training Video I  Have Ever Seen!!!

Digicast Supervisor #CCD09DI don’t say these words easily, but I would have to say that I’ve just seen the first safety training video I have actually ever enjoyed watching.

“Supervisor Leadership Skills for a Safe Workplace” is so refreshing as it doesn’t do the usual boring drone about legislative responsibilities, procedures, PPE and audits.


Instead, it targets how to improve supervisor skills and behaviours, in order to lift company safety performance. It’s also got a comprehensive section on 9 “Connect & Collaborate” Skills to improve toolbox talks, with a handy template to follow. You can even get an extra option of either telephone or onsite coaching.

It directly targets the hearts and minds of supervisors – even though the target is mainly blokes. It’s warm, friendly, engaging, non-confrontational and non-intimidating. Even hard nuts can relate to it, and find skills within themselves that they never knew existed deep down inside. This has the potential to tame some savage beasts!

I love how it gets supervisors to look at their behaviours and personalities to become a better supervisor, to have employees relate better to them and emulate their commitment and behaviour. The stuff about gratitude, gender bias, culture etc is exactly what we should be focusing on, not zero harm and other silver bullets, straight down to human needs and good relationships – the rest will follow.

It even has handy little hints to make your tool box talks run smoother such as keeping participants standing and eliminate lateness by scheduling starts for weird times like 9.08am.

This video training actually put a little smile on my face – I can see supervisors, around the world, leaving the session with a much more positive attitude and some idea of what they can personally do to make their jobs much easier and more effective. Ahhh – this training has the power to make the world, and your workplace, a better place LOL !

What is a Safety Spud? Lets look at a few more spud head activities in risk and safety: 1. Coming on to site saying there is a safety issue when in fact there’s no such thing, it’s a political issue. 2. ‘Falling apart’ when people make choices that we think are stupid because they won’t do as we ‘tell’ them. Then we put on the angry face and think that overpowering others creates ownership. 3. Putting on the zero harm face, presenting statistics, knowing it has nothing to do with culture, risk or safety. 4. Putting on the superman (hazardman) suit and pretending to be the saviour of everything, this is good spud head cynic stuff. 5. Thinking that everyone else is a spud head except me. 6. Thinking there’s such a thing as ‘common’ sense and using such mythology to blame and label others. 7. Accepting safety policies and processes that dehumanize others. 8. Blaming, ego-seeking, grandstanding and territory protecting behind the mask of safety. 9. Thinking that risk and safety is simple when in fact it is a wicked problem. Denying complexity and putting your spud head in the sand. 10. Continually repeating the nonsense language and discourse of risk aversion that misdirect people about risk, safety, learning and imagination.
