    SafetyTalks Video Training Package

    Sourced from his DVD workshops, SafetyTalks is a safety video training package of 55 succinct, content-rich 'safety moment’ sessions comprising 2-6 minute videos each focusing on a different safety talks topic. In each video, Professor Andrew Hopkins discusses important concepts that can support a wide range of safety training initiatives. Each video is accompanied by support material including a selection of discussion questions. The questions are intended to stimulate attendee participation and action.  These safety talks can be utilised for a variety of uses: for example, as part of a monthly safety discussion meeting to foster a better safety culture.

    Professor Hopkins endorsed Colin Parkin, CPMSIA, RSP to provide major support in the production of the questions accompanying the SafetyTalks video clips.
