This video shows how mobile stairs work, move around, lock into place, and their advantages over step ladders and extension ladders. Inspection is emphasized. Steven St. Laurent, OSHAFLIX trainer, mentions an incident at the plant where the video was filmed where someone wasn’t paying attention and rammed into an overhead shelf that held an internet router and ripped it off the wall! Steve emphasizes holding onto the handrail while climbing, especially while descending. Steve is wearing the T-shirt saying, “It wasn’t me.” At the end of the video, he challenges people to report injuries and property damage so we can prevent something worse from happening. There is another, short, stand-alone video where Steve talks about this T-shirt, which is video 0016 E.
HOW TO INTRODUCE AND DEBRIEF THIS:
It’s almost always best to set up and debrief a video. This means before you show the video; give them something to look for, write down, remember, or list out from the video. Basically, you’re giving your crew something to look for to their raise curiosity such as, “About halfway through this video, listen carefully for what Steve says about what happened as a result of not paying attention to where you’re pushing the mobile stairs.” This is what I mean by set up the video. Now they are paying more attention! And you are guaranteeing participating when you debrief (or discuss) the video after showing it because your people already know they are looking for something or they were supposed to write something down (or remember one thing from the video). Be yourself. Have fun with it. Vary your methods each time. See what works best with your audience.
