With its cost-effective benefits, many organisations are still turning to video to communicate the message of OHS. Why? Well incorporating video into your safety training has several advantages, such as:
- A consistency of the message. Whether it is the induction of new staff, or conducting refresher training for existing employees, using video to deliver the message will ensure that every trainee receives exactly the same message, the same way.
