Biographical / Historical:
This collection of safety films comes from the Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington D.C. Presumably these films were acquired during the 1970s and shown to employees at the Zoo as a means of instilling safe practices within the workplace. Their specific history and background is unknown. However, each film provides full credits and the distributors and producers are listed.

The training film serves the purpose of educating employees, reflecting the interests of the corporation, and encouraging safe practices within the workplace. A subgenre of training films, is a category dealing solely with safety issues. The safety film is supposed to promote safe living and the elimination of harmful or dangerous working conditions. Originally made by corporations such as auto-manufacturers, railroad companies, and insurance businesses, these films tend to communicate the interests of the corporation versus that of the employee. Frequently, these films tend to place the blame on the victim, shifting any responsibility for accidents away from management and onto the worker. As a result the safety film focuses more on the accidents that occur than the actual safety issues. Often the film presents a melodramatic story of an employee's tragic accident, and selectively illustrates the pain and suffering undergone in the workplace.
Provenance:
This collection of safety films was transferred to the Archives Center by the Smithsonian National Zoo. No records of the transfer exist.
