Work related accidents in the construction industry are at an unacceptably high level. Better education (particularly related to re-training) across all skill levels in the industry is seen as an integral part of any solution. Traditional lecture-based courses often fail to re-create the dynamic realities of managing health and safety (H&S) on-site. They therefore do not sufficiently engage the students in deeper learning (which results in remembering and using what was learned). Interactive video appears to be one method which can aid this process by better engaging students with the material. This paper describes the development of an interactive video used to teach students about risks in setting out on-street traffic engineering experiments.
