Napo in ... Working together
Seven short scenes. Each scene can be used individually or the whole film can be seen. The film emphasises the importance of strong, visible leadership and worker involvement and participation in OSH.
Managers and employees in all sectors and at all levels
‘Working together’ addresses two issues in prevention: culture and behaviour. It emphasises that by working together, managers and employees can create a safer, healthier and more productive workplace based on a collaborative approach to improve safety culture - ‘the way we do things around here’ - the way in which safety is managed in the workplace. Managers are leaders; effective leaders demonstrate their commitment by their actions. They promote OSH and lead by example; they are visible and aware of key issues. They are respected and trusted by the workforce because there is open communication and dialogue. They give recognition when things are done well and are decisive if things go wrong. Worker involvement is a two-way process where managers and employees talk to one another; listen to one another's concerns; solve problems, and share views and information.
The film is one of a well-established series addressing issues about safety and health at work. Napo is used worldwide because of its neutral approach. The film supported a major European prevention campaign in 2012-13.
