    I want to entertain, frighten, and instruct my crew with short video clips of tree work gone wrong. Suggestions and links are appreciated.

    Awhile back someone linked to this 11-second video showing kickback. So effective.

    That one with the mannequin getting pulled into the chipper via a rope is terrifying.

    Thanks JD. That video is here. I've just passed it along to my guys.

    When I attended a train the trainer class the instructor, a college education teacher, cautioned us about using examples of how not to perform a task

    The reason is that this can lead to confusion and enforce the wrong way

    This applies more to things like tying knots rather than using examples of blatant fails like YouTube is clotted with

    Even so...too many fail examples can setup a thought process that justifies doing
    Something wrong

    Yes, it'd be sadistic to teach the class "25 ways to mis-tie the running bowline". But I don't see how disaster videos like the two examples above can set up a bad thought process. They certainly don't have an ill effect on me. In tree work I think it is healthy to be ever-mindful of all the ways a thing can go wrong.

    I agree with both of you.

    Just a word of caution when you're writing your lesson plans

    You need only look at some of the videos posted here and the ensuing comments to see that different views of right and wrong arise about the same video.

    A video has to be pretty stark and the viewers have to be able to see the mistakes if you are to use the video effectively.

    A really great example is the new employee that has bad technique and no approach to safety because of his previous experience. Show him a video of the same techniques and he will think it fine, the video will reinforce his beliefs.
