Book Description

This multiple award-winning film is about the impact and results of a serious workplace accident, it explores responsibility for safety and goes to the heart of safety awareness. In the film management and staff at Brookdale Electronics are working flat out to fulfil a large order for a new Japanese client. Everyone’s under pressure; corners are cut and established safety procedures ignored. The result: a serious accident that leaves a young office worker crippled for life. The Factory Inspector’s investigation reveals that no one person was entirely responsible. The errors were cumulative and collective. Everyone, including the victim herself, played their part in the tragedy. And everyone could have prevented the accident. Learning points: ¢ the legal, moral and personal responsibility for accidents that resides with staff members, managers and directors ¢ accidents can happen - even in the most safety conscious company ¢ what happens when safety procedures are ignored ¢ legislation alone won’t prevent bad habits - a safety-first attitude is needed. Now available in DVD format with a work book included on CD. Duration: 24 minutes
