Background:

IOSH Singapore Branch has commissioned a series of animated short videos, focusing on safety at school, based on the Minecraft* characters, targeted at 8- to 11-year-old students.

The aim is to provide a free, fun and easily accessible tool for teachers to use in the class, to help them raise students’ awareness about safety and responsibility in school environments.

We want to inspire youngsters to identify hazards in their daily environment – “school” – and to think creatively about the best way to prevent accidents. We want them to acknowledge risk and behave proactively in the presence of risk, rather than being risk-averse. Ultimately, our hope is to nurture a culture of prevention from an early age, helping to reduce incidents in schools.

Method – animated short videos
- The videos use characters modelled on the popular Minecraft environment.
- The five 2-minute videos take place at different locations in the school and feature safety hazards that a student may encounter.
- All videos are in English, with subtitles for accessibility.

Overarching story
Four students embark on a school project, to create a video about safety at school. Along the way, they discover various hazards and create their video, sharing ideas on what might happen and safe practices on how to prevent them around the school.

Characters
John – the bespectacled geek
Paul – the class monitor
Kate – the playful kid
Mito – the creative thinker

What’s happened so far?
IOSH Singapore Branch has conducted a beta-testing trial with a local primary school (two classes) and the feedback has been very positive, both from teachers and students. The initiative has also been presented at the APOSHO 2016 conference in Seoul and was well received by the international OSH community and by OSH organisations from the Asia-Pacific region.

Outcome
The video package will be launched formally around the third quarter of 2016, as an online tool, free of charge and with open access to primary schools and teachers. It will be available via social media and directly on request.
