OSHA requires you to provide workers with information and training on hazards that apply to your workplace. Your site orientation should include a learning session and a tour of the work area and facility to discuss all applicable hazards. When contractors come to work at your facility, a comprehensive safety orientation is necessary to protect their safety as well as the safety of your staff. Setting up an orientation program doesn't have to be complicated–just trust First Choice Safety Solutions.
When you are ready to create an orientation or site training video, choosing a company with extensive video production experience and uniquely qualified to make training and educational videos that can bring your vision to life is essential.
When choosing a company to produce your training video, here are some key questions to ask. You'll want to make sure your video production company is mapping through a clear schedule, budget, and timeline with clearly defined milestones. It's also important that the company fully understands your training needs, how the video will be used, and their proposal matches your vision. Before picking a company, make sure they have previously produced educational and training videos with a wide range of approaches - and make sure you view any examples they can offer.
Take a look at our example reel of past work.
The OSHA Act makes all employers accountable for providing safe and healthful workplaces. Additionally, employers must comply with the OSHA General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act, which requires that each employer furnish to each of its employees a workplace that is free from recognized hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm.
