Interview with Louise Mackenzie, H&S Consultants: How Can Video Make Health and Safety Training More Effective?

H&S Consultants (UK) Ltd are a UK-wide health and safety consultancy and training provider, with a highly-qualified team offering training to clients in the Construction, Leisure, Education, Retail, Mechanical Engineering and Financial sectors.

Director Louise Mackenzie took some time out to talk to us about how video training can help make health and safety training more engaging and effective.

“I’ve been in the health and safety training industry for 20 years, and in my experience, health and safety training is often greeted with a big sigh and an “oh my god”.

People think they’re going to be sat in a hot meeting room for hours looking at PowerPoint presentations and going through tons of paperwork, risk assessments and record statements.

What we’re trying to do is bring health and safety to life. There’s definitely a place for online training videos to do that. Pictures speak a thousand words and we need to use them in our industry to bring simple, effective health and safety training and education to industry.

“Having worked with Tribuco for a few weeks now I’m very interested in their approach. Online training is very generic, and there are hundreds of training videos out there offering bog standard manual handling awareness training and forklift training.

What I like about Tribuco is that it makes it easy to deliver video training that’s very bespoke. What you personalise training to an individual company’s environment, machinery and employees, staff are more likely to follow it.

We’re also working in a challenging environment now, and companies are often geographically challenged, but the app can be accessed anywhere. As long as employees have access to the app, they have access to their company’s training wherever they are in the country.”
