Chemical Safety Board Videos Now Playing on an iPod Near You
The U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB) recently announced that its safety videos are now available on YouTube, as iTunes podcasts, and RSS (Real Simple Syndication) feeds.
"The CSB is committed to using the latest technologies for distributing critical safety information," CSB Chairman Carolyn W. Merritt said. "We believe that making CSB safety videos available as podcasts and on YouTube will make the videos even more accessible and convenient to watch for key stakeholders throughout the world."
Viewers may go directly to www.YouTube.com and search for "CSB videos," or they can access the YouTube videos in the Video Room of the CSB website, www.csb.gov/index.cfm?folder=video_archive&page=index. To put the videos on an iPod, viewers may simply click on the iTunes link in the CSB Video Room, download the video they wish to view as a podcast into iTunes, and from there copy it onto an iPod.
Currently, the CSB is offering 13 safety videos. The BP Texas City refinery accident computer simulation is available in Spanish, German, French, Korean, and English. There is also a video request form on the site for placing requests for these safety videos, free of charge.
In addition, the added RSS capabilities to the Web site enable viewers to set up automatic feeds of CSB news releases and other information through their individualized RSS readers.
