‘Making safety personal’ – new video series

Published:  18 April, 2011

Honeywell (formerly Sperian) has launched a series of videos on YouTube featuring real-life examples of managing safety in challenging environments.

Featuring actual Sperian customers Baker Concrete and Total E&P France, the videos show workers at the Orange Line, an elevated railway in Miami, Florida and a natural gas extraction site in Lacq, France.

The videos emphasise the human aspect of safety management and the crucial role that PPE plays.

Grant Johnson, Regional Safety Manager at Baker Concrete and Alain Delaire, Safety and Environment Technical Officer at Total E&P France discuss the everyday challenges faced in their roles, and offer insight into the routines and practices in place to ensure the adoption and consistent use of relevant PPE, and how they manage co-worker relationships.

Despite working in different countries, different industries and different cultures both Grant and Alan have a huge amount of experience and their passion for safety management and their team is apparent.

Highlighting this trust and the authentic nature of the videos is the fact that various team members have also been profiled to demonstrate the PPE they use to stay safe.

The video series is currently available here.
