Evaluation of a digital platform for capturing and sharing occupational health and safety videos among construction workers

Summary

The research examined a novel approach to capturing and representing important health and safety information in video format and reproducing and sharing this video content on a digital platform.

Workers contributed to scripting, filming and producing video content that captured their tacit knowledge about how to work safely.

The research showed the videos were an effective way to communicate health and safety information to construction workers. Further, involving workers in making video content helped to identify gaps between work as imagined and work as done, that could then be addressed by redesigning construction work sequences to make them safer.
