Effective Health and Safety Videos


Stormy Studio, a UK animation studio have produced a large number of professional health and safety animated videos for the utilities sector and other industries.

Through effective scriptwriting and design plus collaboration with HSE experts we've delivered effective health and safety training videos that engage with different audiences.

The first of the animated HSE series came about as a result of a superb corporate video production contract with UK Power Networks. We were commissioned to produce a series of effective health and safety animated videos that would be viewed by their skilled workforce.

We relished the challenge of exploring relatable, light hearted and effective health and safety creatives. Each video needed to be around 45 seconds long and touch upon a single business safety message.

Health and safety is a great subject for animated video production as it allows you to explore dangerous scenarios, use visual effects, whilst still delivering a professional branded end result.

The scripts were based on health and safety posters the company had produced in the past. We then developed multiple creative ideas, which found a balance between fun, effective messaging and maintaining a professional company image.

After a script and draft storyboard are approved. Initial characters are sketched out and reviewed before being brought to life in our in house animation and design software. For some projects where accuracy is essential, both 2D and 3D environments will go through various rounds of review to ensure they show a fair and accurate representaiton of real life. i.e. correct power line and road work layout.

The initial video series we created for UK Power Networks were delivered one at a time throughout the Summer of 2016. Each health and safety animation was then released company wide and viewed by the whole organisation at presentations as well as on the company intranet, which every employee logs into.

The project was a great success and lead to many repeat safety and comms projects. One used 3D animation to show environmental safety scenarios, plus another was a 2D series targeting public safety around powerlines and had a less comic approach.
