The 2019 Safety Animation Award theme is ‘Destination . . . Safety!’
Your mission, and failure is NOT an option, is to identify one or more potential risks to safety, including hand injuries, that you may encounter during your trip into Deep Space. Demonstrate practical and innovative solutions to mitigate these risks and ensure the achievement of your goals.
Make sure to identify the personnel, processes and tools needed. Think broadly. For example, preventing hand injuries is about more than just putting on a pair of gloves!
