We've begun to think about this as well. With google available to search the entire web as well as the manual for relevant information, we have hopes of slimming down our lab safety manual to have information specific to Cornell and relying on references such as Prudent Practices and SACL providing reference information. For this reason, we're thinking in terms of a list of FAQ's on the topics we cover, with short intros and possibility video clips in the various sections we decide we need. The challenge is reframing the information from the traditional safety professional approach of describing controls to a more lab-centric approach of recognizing hazards and managing them systemically.

It's good to hear that others are taking on this question.
