The benefits of using animation to communicate health & safety procedures
The most practical benefit was in illustrating dangerous situations that would have been costly and difficult to recreate, such as launching a lifeboat and rescuing a man overboard. In addition, because a number of the procedures were consistent across all nine boats, CADS was able to use modular video sections that could be re-used across the five individual animations for the different vessels.
Furthermore, the animations have commercial longevity. They are quick and cost-efficient to update as procedures and legislation change, particularly when compared to a film crew, who would have historically been used.
CADS was also able to supply an interactive panoramic model which was created from the laser survey information captured for the client’s health and safety video.

When commissioning our new health and safety video we wanted a result that reflected the technical expertise of the business. and were delighted to find CADS and having seen what they were capable of. They engaged us in the creative process, working with us to create storyboards and voiceover scripts as well as in the process of reviewing and making final amends.
We wanted our health and safety videos to be updated easily when processes changed or new boats acquired. As a result CADS proposed a modular solution where video clips could be swapped in and out, which means for our new boats we only have to create new clips for the unique elements particular to that boat.
I would heartily recommend CADS. We thoroughly enjoyed working with the team and are extremely happy with the final HSE videos that we now have playing in all our boats. The videos are informative and engaging and help to keep passengers and crew informed and safe when travelling on board our boats.
