Description:

A male and female couple prepare breakfast in the morning before leaving for work. They are not speaking to each other and there is clearly a some tension between them. As the male dresses we understand he is a construction worker, and though they almost talk, he leaves the home without saying goodbye. At work we see the male climb a ladder andf there is an accident. The message is:
Life can be stressful.
But you’re not alone. Talk to someone.
Accidents happen with stress.

Target group:

Young workers

Subject matter:

Overall message is aimed at workers to be aware that stress can make you more likely to have an accident at work, and that it’s important to talk to someone about stress and its associated symptoms like poor concentration or fatigue.
The end lines are:
Life can be stressful.
But you’re not alone. Talk to someone.
Accidents happen with stress.

Background:

Much of the literature dealing with stress concerns the costs associated with sickness absence and lost productivity. However research into accident causation also shows that 70-80% of accidents have a stress related component, for example leading to poor concentration, fatigue and distraction. Such research is of direct relevance to workers and specifically young workers and should be better known. The video seeks to communicate a message that stress can originate from any part of life – at home or at work – and can lead to accidents. Given that the film shows the dangers inherent in stress – particularly for those workers in high risk jobs like construction - the film aims to create an incentive for any worker to be self aware of one’s own mental state and, if necessary, to speak to someone at work.
