Health and Safety Made Fun

The words 'health and safety video' typically inspire a feeling of dread and images of a rather dreary man in a hi-viz jacket speaking woodenly into a wobbling camera. It would seem that the Aussies do it rather better, however. Metro Trains Melbourne has come up with a cartoon designed to help people understand that dicing with their trains, trying to beat level crossing gates and not taking care on platforms are actually pretty dumb things to do.
I feel I must issue a couple of warnings:
  • for those of a sensitive disposition: the film depicts cartoon characters in scenes of extreme peril and even suffering grizzly ends
  • you're going to be singing that darned song for the rest of the day


  1. Me and my house mates love it! We were all singing it whilst doing our excel work! :D

  2. Isn't it great?! I think I've even perfected the dance, though obviously my version lacks the gruesome injuries!

  3. Hehe, same! Yeah, well I know a couple of people who could potentially add in the gruesomeness! ;)

  4. Hm, I think I'll leave the grizzly stuff to the cartoon characters. They do it so well!
