Clinic safety could take a fun lesson from the airlines

Safety is always a serious subject, especially in the airline industry, which has one of the best safety records in any industry but any lapses in safety and security could have disastrous results.

Still, anyone who has taken a trip on an airplane has undoubtedly tuned out the pre-flight safety lecture that flight attendants give about fastening your seat belts and grabbing your seat cushions if you go for a swim during your flight.

That’s why I am loving Delta’s new in-flight safety video which has been circulated this morning on social media. It’s a fun take on the usual safety video that gives a nod to the 80s, featuring multiple references to the decade including Alf, Atari, breakdancing, Teddy Ruxpin, and Devo.

It’s an era that I remember just a little bit too much, but the humor of it got me to watch it and take it seriously, especially when I watched Alf trying to put an oxygen mask on his snout. It just goes to show that safety can be fun as well as serious, and maybe it takes a little humor and a different approach to get people to pay attention to the same message.
