Health and Safety Videos

CPWR has a growing library of videos on safety and health topics affecting construction workers, including disaster response, ergonomics, exposure to fumes and silica, and ways to improve safety and health on job sites. The following are just a few examples of the videos available.
 

Selected CPWR videos

“A Simple Task” is a three-part series that uses information collected as part of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health’s Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation to create short videos about true stories of fatal construction accidents. Videos cover falls from ladders, electrocution from overhead power lines, and a trench collapse.   

The Best Built Plans program provides contractors and workers with practical tools and information to plan for safe materials handling while staying productive and profitable.  The resources include a new video on how to use the program. 

Don’t Fall For It is a 13-minute video (in English and Spanish) that mixes interviews with survivors of falls from ladders (or victims’ survivors) with information about safe procedures. 

The Foundations for Safety Leadership program teaches students about five critical leadership skills they can use on the jobsite to work more effectively with their crew members to build a stronger jobsite safety climate. New two-minute refresher videos remind workers of the FSL leadership practices and give them the opportunity to set goals and be accountable.   

SAVE (Safety Voice in Ergonomics) is a free training program designed to teach masonry brick and block apprentices problem solving skills and ergonomics. Each of its seven units includes a brief video, and there is also an orientation video for instructors.
