It’s a wrap!
After 2 years, dozens of shoots and with the cooperation of an army of people, the Group Training Australia (SA) Induction Video Series has now been completed.
The series of 6 videos has been produced in conjunction with GTASA members and covers trade areas including construction, hospitality, automotive, horticulture and engineering. This initiative was supported by the Employers Mutual Member Benefits Program which supports major safety initiatives throught Sth Australia. The project was managed for GTA(SA) by Mal Aubrey who provided extensive logistical and moral support throughout.
The program starts apprentices off on a good safety footing with a general induction video on safety concepts and then progresses into their particular field.
Video preview of Video Induction Series
The videos feature apprentices current and past talking about their safety experiences and ideas on how to work safely throughout their careers. We also interviewed medical professionals who add a different perspective for a new apprentice.
The series took over two years to complete and could not have been possible without the support of the Group Training Organisations throughout the state, their host employers and the apprentices and staff that assisted us throughout.
The GTA(SA) OHS committee, headed by Mal Baxter also played a pivotal role in helping make this an honest look at the workplaces and typical hazards a new apprentice or trainee may find.
The Video series was launched at PEER VEET on the 22nd of March by the Hon Gerry Kandelaars MLC to an audience of about 60 people including the senior management of WorkCover SA, TafeSA, and many key Industry Associations. The launch was a great chance for all the people who have worked hard to bring this together to celebrate the result.
Even some of our interviewees were there to see the preview video.
