Air Force Occupational Safety invites Airmen to challenge their creativity and participate in a safety video challenge to help promote the prevention of mishaps due to falls.

The videos that best communicate fall prevention will be posted on the Air Force Safety Center website and available for use Air Force wide, and included in occupational safety resources to highlight and promote Fall Protection Weeks, May 2-13.

A few simple rules apply: 

• Videos should involve no dangerous activities 

• No one gets injured in the video process

• Length is no more than 30 seconds. Videos may be produced with the help of local public affairs — if resources are available — or created solely by the Airmen entering the video challenge.
