Los Alamos National Laboratory’s safety video website, Safety Cinema, won the 2013 Communicator Award from the International Academy of Visual Arts in the education category. The website also won the International Summit Creative Award in the training category.
Safety Cinema is a series of videos, fliers, posters, presentation slides and safety practices that support the well-being of employees at work and at home. The videos provide technical information in an informal fashion and are designed to appeal to a wide audience.
Making Safety Cinema products available to the Department of Energy and the general public also supports best practices for DOE and the Voluntary Protection Program. “Easy access to the site supports VPP by sharing safety resources throughout the DOE complex, other government organizations, international corporations, schools and universities,” said Associate Director for Environment, Safety and Health Michael Brandt.
“The site was created at the request of the Department of Energy and other national and international government agencies to provide easy access to the Laboratory’s safety videos,” said Robin Nicholas of Los Alamos’ Industrial Hygiene and Safety Division.
