Occupational safety is an extremely serious topic to cover and train. There’s no short-cutting when it comes to safety at work or at home for that matter. Unfortunately, training classes and videos can also be extremely boring and dry when presented to employees. However, there is a growing number of videos circulating around the web that offer anything but a boring approach to safety. Now while there’s nothing funny about safety, there’s always something funny about funny safety videos.
There’s nothing wrong with adding some fun to your safety training. Making it fun helps engage those who would otherwise tune out the content. Instead, a funny video might allow them to participate and absorb the information. They might not even realize they are learning something, but when the moment arises, the information will be there for them to recall. The more you can engage your employees in safety, the stronger the stronger your safety culture will be.
I have compiled the ten funny safety videos that I have found on the web for free. These videos can be great tools for your safety training process. Use them to break up training sessions and get employees thinking safety.
