The Brief

SES are a well known and well respected Engineering firm, part of the Shepherd group.

The S.H.E.Q. Manager wanted to produce a film, which reflected the values of the business and the importance that they put on their Health and Safety record. They wanted a video that was engaging as well as informative and a tool that could be used to promote health and safety practices; reminding employees and subcontractors how important it is, both online and on-site.

The Process

Feature Media worked with the S.H.E.Q. Manager to identify challenges and messages that needed to be included. We put together detailed scripts and schedules of work in our pre production meetings, as we were required to interview several H&S experts and film in offices and on site across the UK.

We also made sure that there was continuity between the SES brand, the website and the film we produced. During ourmotion graphics process, we used 3D graphics in the opening sequence and throughout to highlight key messages. The film was delivered as files for the web or computer playback, on DVD and on branded USB’s.

The Results

Following our customer review, Tony Sidwell, S.H.E.Q. Manager spoke about how the video was being used:

– In pitches for work: a company that can demonstrate its commitment to Health and Safety increases its chances of winning large contracts.

– Involving principle contractors in the film and sending USB’s of the completed film out to them strengthened relationships.

– The film is being played on a loop on sites around the UK as a reminder to employees and subcontractors that H&S should be at the forefront of their minds.
