• Union Pacific Railroad Worker Accidents: Days of Our Years - 1955 Educational Film - S88TV1

    Disturbing and sometimes maudlin trilogy of accidents and their effects on Union Pacific railroad workers and their families, shot with virtuosity in working-class Los Angeles. In the age-old tradition of holding workers (rather than management or the makers of machines) responsible for accidents, this film shows stories of people who are "the victims of themselves." "I know the road does everything in its power to prevent accidents," says the minister/narrator, and saddles these workingmen with complete responsibility for the risks they face. This is a common theme of safety films, which combine a healthy degree of corporate self-interest with an occasional concern for the well-being of workers and consumers.

  • For Gas Employees, PG&E's Culture of Safety Begins with a Boot Camp

    Every month, the deafening sound of jackhammers splitting concrete can be heard at a PG&E facility in this San Joaquin County city. Operating the equipment are new gas utility workers taking part in a hands-on training boot camp that's helping PG&E become the safest utility in the country. In the past, gas employees learned on the job. As of last fall, new entry level gas utility workers begin their PG&E careers with three weeks of intensive training. "What's really important is that they learn how to dig," said gas training manager Greg Cocard. "Utility workers do a lot of digging and if you're not taught right from the beginning how to use correct ergonomic techniques you can end up later in your career getting injuries." Safety is the primary reason for the new training. New employe...

Disturbing and sometimes maudlin trilogy of accidents and their effects on Union Pacific railroad workers and their families, shot with virtuosity in working-class Los Angeles. In the age-old tradition of holding workers (rather than management or the makers of machines) responsible for accidents, this film shows stories of people who are "the victims of themselves." "I know the road does everything in its power to prevent accidents," says the minister/narrator, and saddles these workingmen with complete responsibility for the risks they face. This is a common theme of safety films, which combine a healthy degree of corporate self-interest with an occasional concern for the well-being of workers and consumers. If we're not to sell this film short, though, we should look beyond its sleazier side. When ephemeral films channel to us evidence of yesterday's everyday life and culture, evidence we'd be hard-pressed to find elsewhere, they're really at their best; and this is a great example. The Days of Our Years transcends its limited mandate to present a portrait of a white working-class Los Angeles, a culture which has now pretty much vanished. This L.A. is populated by working people who live near the railroad freight terminal and repair shops in places like Commerce, Vernon and Bell. Joe Tindler, a road electrical foreman is in love with Helen, a waitress at a local luncheonette; they're saving up to get married. Two buddies on a yard train crew (George Price and Fred Bellows) plan to retire together and travel the world. And Charlie O'Neill is excited beyond words at the imminence of a new baby. These are pretty basic aspirations: marriage, a new home, retirement "after forty-two years of good, honest work," a new baby. In each case the wish is not granted because of an accident. This is not the California of 77 Sunset Strip and the Cleavers; it's a working-class community resembling the urban Northeast rather than the suburbs and beach cities of southern California. Its people live more traditional lives and work at jobs that have been in existence for over a century, and the film shows this with skill and precision. The strength of the film lies in the details. When we're introduced to Joe Tindler, he's shaving his neck in his bachelor room. Keep an eye on that neck. Helen looks into a polished toaster and fantasizes her future with Joe, including the purchase of that "Plan 5 Model Home." The Prices and Bellows sit planning their retirement at a picnic table covered with National Geographics opened to ads for Hawaiian vacations. Larry Bellows pulls down a windowshade as he changes clothes, and George Price sees this as a rejection and rebuke. Saddest of all, young welder Charlie O'Neill, newly blinded and wearing Roy Orbison shades, gropes around his baby son's crib in search of a toy locomotive. We mentioned the Biblical allusions. There is something almost scriptural in the rhythm and simplicity of the narration. "George tried to go to Fred Bellows' funeral, but the doctor said no. You don't walk around two days after a heart attack. But they couldn't keep him away from the window." The minister/narrator has almost complete control over the narration; everything is voiceover except for the screams of the victims. A profound contradiction embraces most safety films, a mismatch between ends and means. Quite often the most effective accident reduction strategy for a filmmaker seems to be to present dramatized accidents. When audiences see careless, pain and suffering and their devastating effects, it's thought they'll act more safely. But does it really work that way? Simply examine your feelings as you sit and watch a film like The Days of Our Years. If you are a typical spectator, what you're doing is really waiting for the accident to happen. This is the payoff, the gratification, the closure. I'd argue that this process is distracting enough to weaken, maybe even crowd out, the intended message. In fact, The Days of Our Years builds up to the climactic accidents with great skill and drama, and it does this not once, but three times over. Some safety films employ unorthodox measures to get the viewer's attention or focus on the risks and pitfalls of ordinary behavior. There's nothing radical about The Days of Our Years; it's simply an extremely well-made film pitting the risk of life-disrupting accidents against closely held values of ritual, community and family succession. "Let not man by his thoughtlessness diminish the blessings of the Lord." It's like a safety shoe you put on to protect your foot.

In 2007 a trial program of 400 Pacific fruit pickers was judged to be so successful that this year, the Kiwis are welcoming 5,000 guest workers. New Zealand’s labour “Pacific Solution” is being hailed as a win win situation for all concerned. Not only are New Zealand farmers happy, but worker remittances go directly to where they’re needed most - poor villages. It’s a form of direct foreign aid, neatly bypassing the region’s notoriously inept or corrupt Governments. New Zealand expatriate turned Vanuatu labour recruiter Dick Eade says, “they decided in New Zealand to reduce the number of backpacker permits and replace them with Pacific islands people because they are sitting here with nothing to do basically, willing to work. Instead of pumping millions of dollars of aid in – here’s a very practical way and effective way – in that people will value the money if they’'ve earned it themselves.” For decades, Australia and New Zealand have poured billions of aid dollars into the troubled Pacific region, often with questionable results. But this New Zealand scheme may really help rescue a lost generation.

Every month, the deafening sound of jackhammers splitting concrete can be heard at a PG&E facility in this San Joaquin County city. Operating the equipment are new gas utility workers taking part in a hands-on training boot camp that's helping PG&E become the safest utility in the country. In the past, gas employees learned on the job. As of last fall, new entry level gas utility workers begin their PG&E careers with three weeks of intensive training. "What's really important is that they learn how to dig," said gas training manager Greg Cocard. "Utility workers do a lot of digging and if you're not taught right from the beginning how to use correct ergonomic techniques you can end up later in your career getting injuries." Safety is the primary reason for the new training. New employees are taught critical skills that will keep themselves, co-workers and the public safe. Among the new employees is Darlene Ford, a recent graduate of PG&E's first PowerPathway course introducing women to utility work. She and her colleagues get classroom instruction and learn first aid and even fire extinguisher safety. And they're shown the proper way to tamp or compact dirt, splice wire and cadweld wires to steel pipes — tasks that every gas utility worker needs to know. "I'm excited just knowing the construction field that they've come full circle to say, 'Work safely' prior to me going out there," Ford said. "'Look out for the public. Look out for your fellow employee.' That's exciting to me as a worker in this field." They're empowered to stop a job at any time if they have a safety concern. And they're taught to always look for any possible hazards so that their crew remains safe. Most of these students got their jobs after applying online. From there they passed an interview panel. And now they're learning vital safety skills they'll need once they're working in the field with an actual gas crew. A majority of the new employees have worked in construction, though the training is new for some. Ralph Cantrell has worked for years in the industry and even was a contractor for PG&E. Now he's a fulltime gas employee who will begin working in the Chico area once his training is over. "I've been in the utility business for 25 years and the companies I worked for before the level of training was nowhere near the level that PG&E has," Cantrell said. "And that's a company I want to work for." About 20 students rotate through the course every month. This year, 225 new employees will complete the training and join fellow PG&E gas employees in the field from Bakersfield to the Oregon border where they'll provide safe and reliable natural gas to more than 4 million customers. And that culture of safety begins right here. www.pge.com/seeourprogress
