Need Training Videos? Borrow them from OSHA!

Finding videos and good training material for safety meetings can be a challenge. Sure, you can purchase them to show but once you’ve shown it you’re just sitting on a DVD that probably costs you quite a bit and which only got used once.

Next time you need training DVDs, turn to OSHA. They’ve got a lending library that is pretty extensive.

The principle is simple. It operates just like your local library. Just request the DVDs you want (You can have up to 15 out at one time) and make sure that you return them within 12 to 14 days (depending on the popularity of the DVD). You can even extend the due date via phone for certain circumstances. If you lose or damage the material you pay for it.

You can view the “Policies and Procedures” of the video loan program for yourself for more information.

Once you’ve perused that and you agree that this is something that’ll work for you, have a look at the extensive library of material available.

To give you an idea of the breadth of the material available, here’s a list of everything that’s available under “A”:
