The Use of Video in EH&S
In addition to developing traditional video and web-based training materials, OEHS2 is unique in its use of this visually rich communication media to develop short, interactive video productions that effectively capture, communicate, and archive environmental, industrial hygiene, and safety information. The use of video overcomes the shortcomings of the traditional written format that is easily misinterpreted, looses much of the original content over time, and is an inefficient communication tool. High quality digital videography’s images visually communicate exactly how a task must be performed or how it was performed. OEHS2 clients are using this tool to document, communicate, and archive workplace exposure assessments and particularly negative exposure assessments, standard operating procedures for high risk tasks (and incorporating them into training materials) and the effectiveness of alternative work practices (typically presented to regulators that must approve them).
