Videos on Zero, Grab Your Bucket
No, not a bucket of popcorn but an empty bucket in case you vomit.
There are 24 videos on the site, all premised on statements of faith/belief, all ‘framed’ by the first two animated logo videos ‘We believe’. Yep, you have it, the Trinitarian logo of zero is framed by ‘statements of belief’. The first two animations presented on at https://visionzero.global/videos and are all about ‘belief statements’. Every stated belief in the videos sits in denial of fallibility, human frailty and finiteness even though every animated character is portrayed in such a way.
I was tempted to write commentary analysis on each video but the drivel is overwhelming and the more you watch the cult the more you dry reach.
We have already seen the Spirit of Zero (https://safetyrisk.net/the-spirit-of-zero/) but there more. How amazing all this rubbish because Safety doesn’t know how to escape the binary nonsense of zero.
Maybe watch the animation on hazards where a hazard is identified as a demon ghost. Or, videos on targets, results and goals that are not about targets, results or goals. Then again maybe you will like how many of the animations portray workers as dumb. (BTW none wearing PPE, including the animated executives).
The 7 golden rules videos are classic standard safety stuff, two on slips and trips. (Don’t you love the use of 3, 7 and 10 in zero and never 6, the devils number). Only zero could trot out more of the same and then call it ‘new’ or innovative when all of this stuff is tired old safety stuff – telling, dumb workers, boring repetition and believe in zero.
You might then wander down to other videos on numerics and statements of faith/belief starting with Hans-Horst Konkolewsky — President International ORP Foundation, Vision Zero Ambassador (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=preheDbNb1Y). Then follow a range of personal ‘testimonies’ of belief all indoctrinated with the ideology of zero. The only testimony learned in these stories is the sad tale of no critical thinking in the cult of zero. How strange this campaign on zero when practitioners don’t believe in it (https://safetyrisk.net/take-the-zero-survey/).
Of course, if you want to move away from zero so that safety improves (https://safetyrisk.net/moving-away-from-zero-so-that-safety-improves/) you need to reject all this propaganda by Zero and adopt something that works. A better way to do safety is documented in the latest book: It Works! A New Approach to Risk and Safety. (https://www.humandymensions.com/product/it-works-a-new-approach-to-risk-and-safety/)
