Virginia Beach, VA – June 17, 2009 – Coastal Training Technologies has released Just Another Day, a new DVD program that dramatically reminds experienced workers of proper safety practices.
The program addresses one of the ironies of workplace safety: that the more experienced workers are, the more prone they can be to the dangers. The safety awareness of these employees may be blunted by years of routine work. Confident and complacent, they treat the working day as “just another day,” leaving them vulnerable to various safety hazards.
To illustrate this sobering fact, Just Another Day follows the daily routine of five long-time workers and invites viewers to cite the hazards these workers missed along the way. Some slip-ups are obvious while others are not. The format makes for a great training experience, testing the viewers’ ability to recognize the hazards these veteran employees may ignore.
Engaging and interactive, Just Another Day is an effective training tool to shake veteran employees out of their complacency, sharpen their focus, and refresh their awareness of various safety issues - slips, trips and falls; electrical work; confined spaces; forklift driving; lifting and ergonomics, among others.
Just Another Day tackles the psychological dimension of safety, recognizing that it is as much about skill and knowledge as attitude and mindset. The program also reminds them that dangers do not disappear with experience and that they are responsible for their less experienced colleagues, who look to them for guidance and example.
The Just Another Day safety training DVD is available for a FREE 7-day preview. Call 800-767-7703 or visit www.coastal.com to order.
