At SightSafe we understand the importance of Health & Safety in today’s working and business environment.
Health & Safety provides a platform from which you, as the employer, have the opportunity to show how seriously you consider the welfare of yourself, your colleagues and sub contractors. It is imperative therefore that the message of health & safety is understood by everyone in the workplace.
Our goal is to help our clients reduce accidents on their sites by raising awareness of the site-specific hazards and risks relevant to the activities undertaken.
Induction and training films are often the first chance you will get to communicate with operatives and staff informing them of your specific safety rules, regulations and requirements. It represents a good opportunity to gather staff and operatives thoughts on health and safety as well as to instil your company’s requirements and policies.
SightSafe produce Induction’s for Construction, Civil Engineering, Facilities Management, Mechanical and Electrical and Offices and include a wide range of contractors and companies of varying size located throughout the United Kingdom.
Every film produced is unique, catering to our clients specific requirements as opposed to generic ‘off the shelf’ DVD’s. All films are produced from a blank canvas allowing as much scope and content as required and during pre production details of the safety, health and environmental information is scripted specifically using the relevant content.
We are able to turn our hand to any kind of DVD required ranging from training films, site specific inductions, company generic induction, industrial, facilities management, construction, civil engineering, mechanical and electrical, social housing, fit out, tool box talks, to promotional and awareness productions.
Our in-house editing suites mean an efficient turn round time and our portable editing facilities now allow us to edit on site making us even more flexible, allowing our client to preview the DVD draft even earlier.
All our employees are CSCS accredited, have several years of onsite experience and trained in first aid. Whilst most people opt for DVDs we are able to provide our films in your preferred format allowing you the facility to upload onto your company intranet, inserting AVI and MPEG files within PowerPoint presentations and supplying copies on CD ROM.
