YIT Work Safety -video is an ABC guide to working on a construction building site. The chosen format of simple and clean animation was designed with the target audience in mind. There are several Central Asian nationalities working in the Russian Federation area. YIT wanted to produce a work safety animation especially to educate workers from this area. As you will come to notice towards the end of the animation, the first and foremost message is to prevent unnecessary falls on the building site. The second aim is to provide tools for safe working and to educate about basic protective equipment and safety rules and routines on the building site. The relatively slow pace of the narration and the stripped simple animation style was tailor made for the main audience of Uzbek and Taijik origin. The original animation was created in English and language versions were made in Russian, Taijik and Uzbek. This video is a key asset on the YIT building sites during work safety training and induction process.
