The Crossrail Health and Safety team has produced six short films designed to encourage a focus on some of the health impacts and safety risks that construction workers face.
The films underline the importance of safety and health during construction and fit-out of the new railway and can be used by construction companies, whether large or small.
Each film uses a different fictional scenario to depict realistic situations, which could happen, when basic health and safety controls are not followed. Designed for impact and to leave a lasting memory, the films encourage safe and responsible behaviour focusing on mental health, exposure to dust, hot works, working at height, working near electricity and machinery. They illustrate situations which can be used as part of a highly focused approach or for more general campaigns.
