SAIF’s new video series combines Oregon charm with workplace safety
Oregon Odd Jobs visits workplaces in all corners of the state.
Oregon Odd Jobs
We're traveling the state to learn more about the weird and wonderful jobs Oregonians undertake every day. We'll find out what they do and how they stay safe. Join us for Oregon Odd Jobs, premiering in January 2023.
SAIF visited workplaces across the state to create a new YouTube series, Oregon Odd Jobs. The series showcases uniquely Oregon jobs and how they’re done safely.
“While safety is everyone's responsibility, we all go about it differently depending on the job we do,” says SAIF safety consultant Dawn Jacobs. “Oregon Odd Jobs highlights the weird and wonderful while giving us a look at how Oregonians stay safe.”
Among other things, the videos teach how these businesses find safety success as they combat complacency, stay alert to surrounding hazards, keep up with safety innovations, and put safety redundancies in place.
The first three episodes feature Homestead Log Homes in Central Point, Oregon Potato Company in Boardman, and Oaks Park Amusement Park in Portland. Host Corey Jenkins, SAIF’s creative services supervisor, tries his hand at building log homes, grinding potatoes, and inspecting roller coasters.
SAIF will publish new episodes every two weeks. Future episodes include wrangling llamas, blowing glass, and feeding sharks.
