Industrial Hygiene

Videos from another era

I recently came across some old government videos related to industrial hygiene, safety and indoor air quality that are just great.  An industrial hygienist, Mark Catlin, has put together a channel on YouTube to organize and share these great videos.  Here’s an example:

According to his profile, “Most of my clips are taken from old government and industrials films… I started clipping short segments from these wonderful old films and clips to use in teaching and I’m glad to be able to share them over the Internet.”

Here are a few more great ones:

Introduction to Asbestos from 1959

And my personal favorite…. Hair Style for Safety WWII
