Toby used to work in a company that employed 350 people and turned over £24 million. One day there was an accident. They had had similar accidents before. But this one resulted in a fire that burned the factory to the ground. And the company ceased to exist. The costs of inadequate safety and health systems is enourmous. But in this film we see the devastating consequences from one man’s point of view. The costs of an accident are not covered by big business or insurance companies. Mostly, it’s the people who pay. It’s lost wages. It’s lost jobs. It’s lives ruined. This DVD makes the business case for good health and safety, and it also shows the human cost of getting things wrong. Training Points: - A vivid demonstration that accidents have consequences: economic and personal - A convincing argument that good health and safety practices are crucial for good business - An attitude changer: eliminate the false logic that because we’ve not had an accident yet, we won’t have one today - Understand that insurance doesn’t cover the worst effects of an accident - See how improving your approach to health and safety also improves business performance - However, health and safety is also about job security and about people’s well-being. 11 minutes.
