08 Apr Business Video Production: The Realistic, Non-Boring Approach To Safety
When you think of safety videos at work, what immediately comes to your mind? Boredom? Lacking in entertainment value? Falling asleep?
Safety videos are usually shown on training days, and they’re almost always shown after lunch. For most of us, that means it’s time to take a nap. At least that’s what those boring, old, outdated videos are encouraging, right? It might seem like an unusual idea…but safety videos really don’t have to be dull and sleep-inducing. There are a few different ways to use business video production to get your company’s safety message out there without boring your staff to tears. Remember, using safety videos to avoid workplace accidents can be a very effective way to teach safety, as long as it’s done right.
Use Realistic Scenes
We’re not sure who decided that a safety video featuring a guy in a suit talking in a monotone voice was a great way to get the message across, but that person was wrong. Your employees need to be able to relate to possible situations they might encounter in the workplace. Using realistic scenes is essential to make those images stick in their minds.
Use Realistic Dialog
If you use scripted scenes with a little humorous dialog, you’ll keep their attention and they won’t forget the information. The script can include valuable legal regulations that drive the points home. Above all, the dialog should be easy to understand and simple to recall later on.
Use Realistic Length
Honestly, have you ever wanted to sit through a safety video that’s an hour long? No one has. Your employees don’t want to, either. The best approach is to keep it short and sweet, and break up the scenes as much as possible. Try to use an approach that gets the most information across that you can, without dragging it on for a long time.
