Electrical Lessons (DVD)
The 16-minute DVD, contributed by Los Alamos National Laboratory, examines three electrical safety incidents and their lessons learned. Though these incidents are demonstrated in three specific work environments, their lessons learned apply throughout the DOE complex—from office to workshop to research bench. The DVD can be used in many ways—as a lesson-learned tool, refresher training in safety meetings, and other formats. Electrical Lessons is the recipient of the 2005 Bronze Telly Award.

Nested - The Nested Safety and Security Committee Process (DVD)
The 28-minute DVD, contributed by Los Alamos National Laboratory, guides viewers through different elements of the Nested Safety and Security Committee (NSSC) meeting process. Major topics are illustrated in three different organization meetings: team, group, and division, demonstrating the key dynamics and potential content for NSSC meetings. NSSC offers an important process to ensure communication, worker involvement, leadership, and action at numerous facilities. This training tool is offered to support organizations throughout the DOE complex as they develop their own safety and security meeting format. Nested—The Nested Safety and Security Committee Process is the recipient of two 2005 Aegis Awards. View additional instructional materials for the DVD. view

TA-16 Stepladder Accident Investigation (Video)
The 7-minute video, contributed by Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), was produced as part of a LANL investigation of a stepladder accident that occurred in April 2003. LANL chartered a team to investigate the accident and prepare an investigation report in accordance with DOE Order 225.1A, Accident Investigations. The accident occurred when a subcontractor employee was standing on an 8-foot stepladder using a cutting torch to remove an overhead 6-inch-diameter carbon-steel pipe. As the worker let the pipe freefall to the floor, the pipe struck the stepladder, causing the worker to fall and injure his right leg. The video can be used in a variety of ways—as a lesson-learned tool, refresher training in safety meetings, and other formats. View additional instructional materials for the video.

Walkaround—Safety Walkaround Training in Four Modules (DVD or Video)
The video, contributed by Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), includes four training modules that demonstrate the safety walkaround process, a process for managers to walk a workspace and engage workers in collaborative discussions about safety in the workplace. Walkarounds are effective tools for improving safety through behavioral observation and teamwork. The four video modules can be used in a variety of ways. They can be used individually or together as a tool to train managers on how to conduct a walkaround process as well as train employees about the safety walkaround elements. When shown in a group setting, the modules can be used as a starting point to discuss how to use the walkaround process within each group to improve their own safety. The Walkaround video is the recipient of the 2004 Bronze Telly Award. The Telly Awards annually showcase the best work of television stations, production companies, advertising agencies, and corporate video departments throughout the world. Entries for these awards are received from all 50 states and five continents and is a widely known and highly respected national and international competition.

THE WORK...and what we learned, A daily approach to Integrated Safety Management (ISM) (Video)
The 29-minute video, contributed by Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), presents an everyday approach to Integrated Safety Management (ISM). It begins by examining the events, insights, and lessons learned surrounding a welding accident that occurred at LANL in April 1999. Candid and personal accounts of mechanical technicians and managers help viewers to reconstruct the events that occurred before, during, and after the accident. Lessons learned are discussed within the broader context of ISM and the 5-Step Process. Through these personal accounts, the viewers come to understand how everyone invests their own skills, insights, and attitudes in their work, and how safety becomes both a professional and personal value. The video is closed-captioned and can be used in a variety of ways. It is short enough to use as a management overview activity, a refresher training in safety meetings, and other formats.

Air-Purifying Respirators (Video)
Product Description: The 25-minute training video, contributed by Los Alamos National Laboratory, introduces workers to the proper fitting and use of air-purifying respirators (APRs). First, the video relates the dynamics of respiration to those conditions which might involve airborne hazardous materials. It then explores various conditions which require respiratory protection, as well as the different types of protection: air-supplied respirators, self-contained breathing apparatuses, and APRs. Next, the video focuses on half-face and full-face APRs, identifying the parts of the respirators, the types of purification cartridges, and the proper donning, testing, removal, storage, and maintenance procedures. Limitations of the respirators and the respirator users are also described. The video concludes with respirator fitting and the issuance of an authorization card.

Electrical Safety (Video)
Product Description: The 17-minute training video, contributed by Los Alamos National Laboratory, presents an introduction for the general population to the safe use of electrical power in the workplace. Electrical power is traced from power plant transmission lines to the electrical outlets. The video also illustrates safe work practices for employees working around electrically powered equipment. Government and private agencies that help establish electrical regulations and guidelines are identified, particularly as they are relate to the DOE community. Lastly, the dangers of lightning and the proper indoor and outdoor responses to lightning storms are demonstrated. View additional instructional materials for the video. view

Leaks and Spills Worker Response to the Accidental Release of Hazardous Chemicals (Video)
Product Description: This 15-minute video, contributed by Los Alamos National Laboratory, introduces chemical workers to proper response practices in the event of an accidental chemical release. Three different accidental releases are presented in the video, and appropriate response actions are demonstrated. View additional instructional materials for the video.
