You know,  while big explosions and stuff are fun to watch (hollywood cashes in on them),  do you really want a SAFETY video that shows employees the most dangerous behaviors?  

I think the members of the Compressed Gas Association have gotten away from the old style video because it causes more problems (and damage and injuries) than teaching good work habits does.

Contact your local compressed gas manufacturer or the CGA for your safety video. Otherwise you might as well just show a hollywood action flick with explosions and lots of people being blown up - because that's what you might get.
