    Talking bizarre safety films

    This one brought to you courtesy of Otis Elevator.

    Check it out, I found it mildly amusing.

    We have used the safe-t-rider program as part of our SAFE (Student Awareness of Fire Education)program. The kids like it, they learn something, and that's what counts!

    I like this German Forklift Safety film. It's funny and gets the point across.
    Here's a review from one site about this short film- ---
    Which brings me to the German "forklift safety video" that's been making the rounds online. It's a rarity in safety literature, because: a) It illustrates people being severed in half, having their hands torn off, and blood coating the walls, yet b) it somehow maintains a Monty-Python-like sense of humor about it. The final death scenes are about as excellent as anything from Final Destination.----------------
    Don't worry if you don't speak German. It's funny to watch and not knowing EXACLTLY what is being said seems to make it better. Since I worked in a warehouse as a order selector and forklift operator I can relate to some of the things in this film. To see the clip go to the URL below-

    KIWI,
    Does that mean you didn't like Klaus and the fatal forklift follies? Sure it's twisted but just because you didn't laugh your butt off watching it doesn't mean others won't. Just be glad you don't work in that warehouse. Their safety record just got smashed by Klaus after being on the job for one day.

    Saw a forklift safety video once where a forklift's driven off of a marine dock at a warehouse facility. The instructor for the class apparently knew some of the people involved in the filming and said that when they dove down and lifted the forklift out after the filming, the production crew looked at it and said "Uh, that's not OUR forklift." This one had apparently been down there for awhile.

    Now that's one strange movie- not quite sure it's a good deterrant or in bad taste....

    An eye opener on the old cars and how they fold up and then how the rescue crews get 'em out.

    The Klaus and his Forklift of Death video is one of the funnier things I have seen in a while - a subtle blend of slapstick humor and horror film grotesque. Thank you for the wonderful viewing experience.

    See? (cellbock points) Julia liked the forklift vid. you guys just don't have a proper sense of humor. Glad you liked it Julia. It's probably the only time I've posted a video link that wouldn't result in my getting banned again.
