Training DVD

Safety Media has launched a new DVD title, which it says takes an informative look at the dangers of electricity.

Narrated by TV presenter and actor Craig Charles, ‘Electrical Safety —

Maniac’ is a 25-minute film, featuring a number of experiments showing

what can happen if electricity is not treated with the respect it


The DVD features ‘maniacs’ who get themselves into a series of situations that you wouldn’t want to find yourself in! Experiments featured include:

Electricity and the human body;

  • How an electric shock happens;
  • How much electricity is dangerous?
  • Electricity and water. 

Julian Roberts, managing director of Safety Media, said: “We all know that working with electricity can be dangerous, but sometimes we can forget. We hope this DVD will be food for thought for employees to think about the task in hand before they get injured.”

‘Electrical Safety — Maniac’ is available on a free, no-obligation, seven-day trial, and comes with 10 electrical safety booklets, which, Safety Media says, are ideal as permanent handouts after the training session.  The DVD also features a host of ‘extras’, including ‘making of’ footage, desktop wallpaper, and PDFs of electrical equipment inspection and test record forms. The package costs £139 (plus P&P and VAT). Orders can be placed by phone (0845 345 1703), or online at where you will receive a 10-per-cent discount.
