NOVEMBER 2012 – BELLEVILLE, ONTARIO – ERI SAFETY VIDEOS has released three new employee training DVDs to raise awareness and educate employees in the areas of Forklift Safety and Confined Space Safety.

SURVIVE INSIDE: EMPLOYEE SAFETY IN CONFINED SPACES No matter what role employees play in their organization’s confined space entry program, they must understand their responsibilities and have the knowledge and skills to perform them properly. This program explains why entering confined spaces can be so hazardous and how those hazards can be controlled by following proper confined space entry procedures. Viewers will also learn valuable lessons from a reenactment of a poorly-conducted confined space entry in which three lives are needlessly lost.

FORKLIFT SAFETY LESSONS FOR THE SAFE PEDESTRIAN Forklifts can be very dangerous for both operators and employees out on the floor. In fact, 20 percent of all forklift incidents involve pedestrians being struck by a lift truck. In such an incident, it’s the pedestrian that will suffer an injury or even death. These workers can avoid this by paying attention to the surroundings, staying a safe distance away from forklifts and following proper procedures. That’s the purpose of this program–to show viewers the precautions they can take to prevent serious, often traumatic injuries that occur when forklifts come into contact with pedestrians.

FORKLIFT SAFETY LESSONS FOR THE SAFE OPERATOR Powered industrial trucks, commonly called forklifts, can be very dangerous as each year, nearly 100 workers are killed and another 20,000 seriously injured in forklift-related accidents. Forklift operators play a vital role in preventing these incidents. By using the training they have received, staying alert to the hazards around them and working safely with pedestrians, loads can be moved securely, each and every time. That’s the purpose of this program–to show operators the safe work practices they must follow to avoid injuries and property damage.

Produced by ERI Safety Videos of Lexington, SC, a leading producer of health and safety training, these programs are available in Canada through Electrolab Training Systems of Belleville, Ontario. To arrange a free preview please call 1-800-267-7482 or visit www.electrolab.ca.
