A new employee safety induction DVD for the Oil industry company Takreer was commissioned in June 2012 and filmed from 10-28th November in Abu Dhabi.
Five site safety induction DVDs were ordered in total to span the range of the business from an office safety DVD, through to a specific health and safety induction DVD for an oil refinery site.
The five UAE safety DVDs for new employees at Takreer will replace their existing Powerpoint induction which was found to be inconsistent and time consuming to deliver.
The main advantage of the five new safety DVDs is that each production will address safety policies and procedures specific to each Takreer site; whilst simultaneously creating a consistent safety message for a new employee whether they are a new office based member of staff for example, or a lab worker at the Takreer Research Centre, or an oil refinery engineer and so on.
This of course will help to give each new employee at Takreer a fuller understanding of their role within the wider business and give them a full safety induction for the location where they will be based.
Shooting locations ranged from Takreer HQ in Abu Dhabi city through to the industrial area of Mussafah and the desert city of Ruwais.
In May 2012, Dolphin Energy Ltd commissioned several safety induction DVDs for visitors, staff and contractors with english, arabic and urdu translations.
Dolphin Energy Limited began gas production in July 2007. This unique strategic energy initiative involves production and processing of natural gas from Qatar's offshore North Field, and transportation of the processed gas by subsea pipeline to the UAE and Oman.
The content of the health and safety DVDs will include an introduction to the company and the safe working practices and emergency procedures in place for all those visiting their gas production site.
