Bibliographic information American Educational Films, 132 Lasky Drive, Beverly Hills, Cal. 90212 USA. Price: $.410.00.
Abstract This 16-min colour film is designed to alert construction crew workers to the dangers of work in confined spaces and the necessary safety measures to avoid accidents. Specific hazards described include toxic gases, explosion and fire, excessive oxygen in the air, and suffocation. The training programme dramatises an incident in which 3 workers suffocated after entering a manhole without testing the atmosphere and shows how the tragedy could have been prevented by use of a simple safety procedure.
