Video Sites Serve Up Safety

Comic, tragic (or a mixture of the two), and sometimes too stodgy, safety videos are only a few keystrokes away. Look around; something you find may be useful in training at your site.

Safety videos have long been popular with trainers, and several companies continue to produce high-quality videos on a wide range of topics. With the popularity of YouTube and greater bandwidth available to millions of Americans, the era of free online videos has arrived -- a tsunami of junk, genius, coarse humor, celebrity and wannabe embarrassment, spin, advertising, and even quality.

The still photograph illustrating this article comes from a clever marketing video made by Kimberly-Clark Professional to introduce its new KLEENGUARD A30 splash and particle protection coveralls. We think you'll enjoy it, especially the end.

Here are a few other titles worth checking out, with thumbnail descriptions to speed your search:
