New Forklift Safety DVD 2010

Forklifts sometimes called Lift Trucks are a common sight in many workplaces, and often make the lifting and transporting of goods and materials much easier and safer. But without good safety practices and procedures in place forklifts can be very dangerous. In fact, forklifts are a leading cause of workplace deaths and injuries.

A loaded forklift can weigh many tonnes, and do a lot of damage in the event of an accident. In addition, they are frequently less stable than many other vehicles.

Behavioural Safety Training DVD



Statistics show that unsafe acts are the most common cause of workplace accidents. Despite the introduction of training programs and safe work practices and procedures, controlling unsafe acts has proven to be difficult.

The reason for this is that unsafe acts involve the Human Factor, that is, they occur as a result of peoples attitudes and behaviours. Behavioural Safety offers a way to reduce the incidence of unsafe acts by modifying peoples behaviours and improving their attitudes towards safety.

Mr Bean does CPR - Hilarious!!

To kick off the new year, we thought we'd keep our posts a little light hearted! Mr Bean was a popular comedy television show in the early 90's. In this episode 'Mr Bean Rides Again', Mr Bean (played by Rowan Atkinson) tries to perform CPR on a heart attack victim. Not very accurate, but most funny! Enjoy!

Safety Jokes!

Although safety is no joking matter, here are a few safety related jokes you can use to lighten up your safety training session!

Q: How do you drive a OHS Manager completely insane?
A: Tie him to a chair, stand in front of him, and fold up a road map the wrong way.

Q: What’s the difference between God and a Safety Manager?
A: God doesn’t think he’s a Safety Manager.

Manual Handling Joke:
During a manual handling training session, a strong young man at the construction site began bragging that he could out do anyone in a feat of strength. He made a special case of making fun of the site safety team. After several minutes, the Safety Manager had had enough.''Why don't you put your money where your mouth is'', he said. "I bet you a weeks wages that I can move something in a wheelbarrow over to that site hut that you won't be able to wheel back". "You're on, old man", the braggart replied. "Let's see what you got". The Safety Manager grabbed a wheelbarrow by the handles. Then, nodding to the young man, he said, "All right, Get in".

Fire Drill
A voice on the site PA loudspeaker announced: "This is a test of the speaker system to make sure it will work properly in case of emergency." My confidence in this safety precaution faded when the voice added: "If you are unable to hear this announcement, please contact us."
