WORKPLACE SAFETY

Premiere Date:Thursday, May 05, 2005

This program is a mix of dramatic scenarios and documentary formatting. This episode focuses on workplace safety and developing safety-conscious attitudes and skills. The dramatic segment features a husband and wife at their different jobs. The wife is a supervisor on a support team at a medical facility. The team is trying to find ways to keep abreast of special instructions in patient care. One of the team members is hiding the fact he can't read. The husband has started a new job in the shipping department of a business and is learning the ropes. He errs with his first shipment by sending packages that exceed weight restrictions. The documentary segments present people in different industries and the safety issues they face. The two main areas of safety training are prevention and response to accidents. The problems that can arrive from physical or repetitive stress, known as ergonomics, are discussed. Safety is often a matter of teamwork.
