Al Hosn – Health and Safety moments

Health and Safety (HSE) Induction animation series, covering a variety of common lessons learned

Al Hosn gas

Our team was tasked with developing a set of language-less animations that would communicate common safety scenarios to their diverse workforce. 

Following Al Hosn Gas’s comprehensive brief, we produced state-of-the-art 3D animated safety training videos highlighting the potential hazards in their operational environment. Each video has no language and follows a single main character through his troubles and how to improve his working ways. 

The problem

The challenges posed by the project stemmed directly as a result of the COVID pandemic. ENEC was transitioning from project development into an operating company, whereby management needed to hold a kick-off initiative for a new management development program. The challenges posed by the pandemic and the inability to hold fully in-person training and workshops thus required adept hybrid solutions that could accommodate all managers in a streamlined and intuitive way.

Many of the technical solutions to this problem simply could not have been solved with videoconferencing software alone and instead our team was retained to assist in the development of management scenarios and accompanying animations developed with the Unreal Engine. It was also necessary to create an uninterrupted hybrid solution that could accommodate team members participating remotely through two syndicate rooms as well as by integrating MS Teams for these remote participants in combination with in-person team members.

The Solution

SHIIFT developed a Hybrid solution for ENEC which linked up in-person team members as well as virtual participants through the use of two syndicate rooms. MS Teams was used for any team members participating remotely. This solution enabled all participants to collaborate and communicate in a simple and intuitive way, no matter the geographical distance separating them. The management training program itself operated in an organized and efficient manner, whereby managers were split into three groups of 6-8 participants with each team tasked with playing a role in various fictitious scenarios. These scenarios  were designed to test desired behaviors of each participating group of managers.

An example scenario includes a busy international seaport, whereby various cargo and cruise passengers pass by. Then, participants were posed challenges and were tasked with developing solutions, such as broken container cranes, an outbreak of COVID amongst cruise ship passengers, traffic congestion problems, and so on. Our hybrid solution included scene-setting, animated clips, videos, phone calls, radio communications, news, media clips, social media feeds and more. All of these features were designed to test and stimulate interaction and strategic thinking within each team of managers. The supervisor also had the ability to modify the scenario parameters in order to monitor and evaluate the responses of managers.

How long did it take?

From start to completion, the entire project took 8 weeks to complete. We started with full scripting and storyboarding with the client before moving in Maya to complete the animation. Post production included full music and sound mixing.

how much input is needed from the client?

SHIIFT has full in house specialist team, we can write with, design and create complete HSE inductions and safety training without much input from the client. We make these projects look easy, clients just approve and review at agreed stages throughout the project.
