The core theme for 2014’s Global Safety Day the idea of change – not paying heed to changes in the working environment, equipment, or working conditions is one of the major reasons for incidents and accidents. Our task was to produce a film to be played for all employees of Anglo American that drove this message home in a clear and powerful way.
We set out 5 scenarios showing how change can lead to dangerous, sometimes fatal incidents, and what can be done to prevent these from occurring in the first place.
Actors playing the parts of Anglo American workers were involved in these situations, and by noticing change, they had the chance to help their colleagues from making what could be fatal mistakes.
Every year, Anglo American observes their Global Safety Day, an international event to help drive safety through the organisation.
