The Attitude of SafetyDeveloped by Jason Tomaric, FilmSkills
ABOUT THIS LESSON
In this module we will start by discussing safety training itself: why we need a course just about safety, and what you will get from it. The slogan “Safety is an Attitude” is commonly heard in safety classes, but its significance is not always obvious. We’re going to start by examining a few serious accidents and identifying factors that may have caused them, so you will see how safety regulations and guidelines come about. We will look at crewmember responsibilities with regard to safety. In this module we will examine human factors that contribute to accidents, such as a failure to take appropriate action in the face of a clear hazard. We will identify specific actions associated with a safe attitude on set. By looking at safety from these various perspectives, we will assemble a clear picture of what is really meant by “a safe attitude”, and underscore why it is so important to preventing injuries and accidents.
