Short Videos Highlight Winter Slip, Trip and Fall Prevention
Taking a light-hearted approach, these animated videos illustrate slip, trip and fall hazards and provide safety tips. Each video is no more than two minutes. Members are encouraged to be creative with using these. Some suggestions include posting to the member entity’s intranet site, e-mailing links to employees, playing the video(s) as a training or discussion starter.
Easy Distribution of Animated Videos
The videos are provided to MCIT member entities to distribute to their employees. Two easy ways to provide the videos to employees is by posting to the entity’s intranet site as a streaming video or by e-mailing links to the videos on MCIT’s online player to employees.

The series of four videos can be shared in any order, except “Cautious Cory Stays Safe” should be provide last to employees, as it builds on all of the safety tips offered in the other three. Use the videos with their corresponding awareness materials in the Emoji theme of the Step Wisely program.
“Catastrophe Chris and His Cell Phone” is the first misadventure of Catastrophe Chris. It shows what happens when he is paying attention to his cell phone rather than identifying where potential slick spots may be while walking outside during the winter.
- Use “Catastrophe Chris and His Cell Phone” in conjunction with the “It’s Hard to See Through Tears” awareness items from the Emoji theme of the Step Wisely program.
“Catastrophe Chris Is Late for Work” shows what happens to Chris when he tries to rush through snow and ice in an effort to be on time. The results are not good.
- Use “Catastrophe Chris Is Late for Work” in conjunction with the “Don’t Put a Bump in Your Day” awareness items from the Emoji theme of the Step Wisely program.
“Catastrophe Chris and Danger Dana Meet for Lunch” shows what happens when Chris and Dana literally run into each other. A different wardrobe choice may have meant they actually get to eat lunch.
- Use “Catastrophe Chris and Danger Dana Meet for Lunch” in conjunction with the “A Bandage Is an Accessory You Don’t Need” awareness items from the Emoji theme of the Step Wisely program.
“Cautious Cory Stays Safe” should be the last video you share with employees during the slip, trip and fall prevention campaign. This video shows Cory using all the slip, trip and fall prevention tips to make it safely to work despite slick outside conditions.
- Use “Cautious Cory Stays Safe” in conjunction with the “Step Wisely to Avoid Injury” awareness items from the Emoji theme of the Step Wisely program.
