Take Time for Safety - E2950E (16 min.)
Description
In our busy lives, we are often faced with time-management choices. When given the chance, we must always choose safety over time savings, because rushing causes us to lose focus, skip steps, and make bad decisions. In fact, the time we spend staying safe is time well spent. In this program, workers learn the very real hazards associated with rushing and being in a hurry. Through various examples, viewers will learn to recognize the symptoms of becoming rushed, why “hurried working” is so dangerous and what steps they can take to stay safe. The program also makes the point that being in a hurry is not the real cause of incidents and injuries, but rather a symptom of poor planning, poor choices and poor time-management–all of which can be prevented by proper preparation and organization.

The First Step - AP3835E (5 min)
Description
This is the story about how one wrong step, one wrong action can change your life forever. Candace Carnahan, a young college student, worked summers at a paper mill in her home town. She had worked at the mill three years and was comfortable with the work and familiar with the environment; so familiar that she thought nothing of taking an often used shortcut – stepping over a conveyor system that ran at floor level. But one day she stepped too short, catching her foot in the conveyor and eventually losing her left leg from the knee down. Candace dramatically describes this tragedy and the safety lessons she learned from it. Her story will help your employees realize that the first step to not being injured is knowing that you can be injured. Candace Carnahan can speak in person for your company or event. Aurora Pictures can work with you to get this insightful and energizing speaker to help enable a culture of safety.
