Electrical Safety Pictures  - Lightning Nearly Strikes Man

Funny Safety Story Two workmen were digging foundations when one of them started shouting and jumping about. The other one thought his partner had hit an underground power cable and was being electrocuted so following good health and safety practice used a shovel to separate him from the electricity. Luckily for the first worker he wasn't getting an electric shock but was panicking after a wasp had flown up his trousers. Fortunately he didn't get stung, but the second worker hit him so hard with the shovel that his shoulder was dislocated.

  1. Safety is a major concern at the manufacturing company where I work.  So I'm constantly preaching caution to the workers I supervise.  'Does anyone know,' I asked a few guys, 'what the speed limit is in our parking lot?'The long silence that followed was interrupted when one of them piped up.  'That depends. Do you mean coming to work or leaving?'

Safety Film - Report

A company trying to continue its five-year perfect safety record showed its workers a film aimed at encouraging the use of safety goggles on the job.  According to the Health and Safety Council News, the film's depiction of gory industrial accidents was so graphic that twenty-five workers suffered minor injuries in their rush to leave the screening room.  Thirteen others fainted, and one man required seven stitches after he cut his head falling off a chair while watching the film.

A Clean, Amusing Health and Safety in the Cinema JokeCinema Joke

Christopher was sprawled across three entire seats in a theatre. When the usher came by and noticed this, he whispered to the man, 'Sorry sir, but you're only allowed one seat.' Christopher groaned but didn't budge one inch. The usher became impatient. 'Sir,' the usher announced, 'If you don't get up from there, I'm going to have to call the manager.' Again, Christopher just groaned which, in turn, infuriated the usher who spun on his heel and marched briskly back up the aisle in search of his manager. In a few moments, both the usher and the manager returned and stood over the man. Together the two of them tried repeatedly to move him, but with no success.  Finally, they summoned the police. The cop surveyed the situation briefly. All right, mate. What's your name?' 'Chris,' the man moaned, in considerable agony. 'And where you from, Chris?' the cop barked. 'The balcony.'

Will and Guy's Take on Health and Safety in the WorkplaceFunny Safety Officer

Interestingly, Will and Guy have been researching Health and Safety in relation to business and work places. We are aware that intrinsically it is not a very interesting topic therefore it becomes essential, we think, to mix the serious message with humour. The fact that in the UK over a *million workers get injured every year and 25,000 people are forced to give up work because of injury or illness caused by work shows that employers are very much taking risks with their workers' health. Most of these injuries could have been avoided if employers had implemented proper safety procedures, but research has shown that around half of employers have not even done a simple risk assessment which is, in fact, a legal requirement. *TUC [Trades Union congress]figures 2009 We are aware that our site pages are towards the top of peoples' choices to view. Why not, therefore, use our findings, stories, pictures, posters and articles in your induction courses and indeed in your Health and Safety programmes. Research indicates that the following three ideas are proven to be successful in communicating to a workforce about Health and Safety. We have found that people remember 50% more in what they see than in what they hear. Visuals get people's attention. Advertising people know about this. The many images on billboards, magazines, newspapers or even on the internet are testimonies that visuals do attract people and advertising using visuals are so effective.

Humour In Posters Brings Good Feelings To a Workplace

This makes ideas more memorable and able to be understood. This has a lot to do with the working of the mind. Pleasant thoughts generate more receptive learning. Have you ever tried studying for an exam when you have ugly thoughts disturbing your mind? Humour effectively drives a point home. Therefore it becomes easier to understand when done correctly. Accidents situations cannot be photographed. Only stuntmen are crazy enough to do things that can result in accidents. Cartoons can be effectively used to illustrate dangerous situations which might be impossible to capture on film in real life

Examples of Humour in Health and Safety Good Dental Jokes

  1. The cap of Bert's tooth fell out so he phoned his dentist, Doctor Exelby, to ask if it could be replaced.'Yes,' said the dentist, 'but it will cost you £175.' 'No way,' said Bert and went off to buy a 50p tube of superglue and stuck the cap back carefully. He woke up in Queen Alexandra Hospital, Cosham. Warning: Apparently superglue contains a cyanide chemical.
  2. When the employees of a High Rise Scaffold Company, Doncaster, England, attended a fire safety seminar, they watched a fire officer demonstrate the proper way to operate an extinguisher.'Pull the pin like a hand grenade,' he roared. 'Then depress the trigger to release the extinguishing agent.' Later Simon Baxter, a rather nervous, young and new employee was selected to extinguish a 'controlled fire' in the live demonstration area. In his nervousness, he forgot to pull the pin. The instructor roared, 'Like a hand grenade? And again louder, 'Like a hand grenade, remember?' In a burst of confidence Simon pulled the pin ..................... and hurled the extinguisher into the blaze
  3. A woman was killed from chlorine gas poisoning when she mixed Harpic and Domestos together in a confined space. She had inadvertently created the same conditions as experienced by the soldiers during a gas attack in the trenches of the First World War

The Safety Officer: An Hilarious and Funny Story

Once, an engineer, a physicist and a safety officer all applied for the same job. The Managing Director interviewed all three, and thought all were excellent. He had to think of some way to find the best person. So he told them all to come back the next day and tell him the exact height of the building. The one who was closest would get the job. The physicist went to the top of the building, and dropped iron balls to the ground, and had his friend timed the balls. He did this several times. The engineer got out a sextant, and computed ratios of a yardstick to the building. The next day, the manager asks all three of them to tell how tall the building is. '75 feet, 2.8 inches,' says the physicist. '76 feet, 4.1 inches,' says the engineer. '75 feet, 8.4 inches,' says the safety officer. 'My Goodness, said the MD, 'the safety officer got it exactly correct. How did you manage that?' 'Well', said the safety officer, 'I went down to the planning department and looked up the height in the building records.'
