ABERDEEN-BASED presenters and magicians Fifth Dimension have landed a contract worth a five-figure sum with a major oil company.
They are to develop and present health and safety training for Shell UK employees, while using magic.
The corporate communications company has created a DVD for Shell’s Aberdeen-based pipeline division to help to reinforce the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours employees need to stay safe and well at work.
As part of the contract, Fifth Dimension has also developed and delivered a health, safety and environment presentation for ship crews in the UK and Norway.
It has been designed to act as a refresher course which captivates people by mixing training with magic tricks and humour.
Bill Duncan, of Fifth Dimension, said: “The projects are significant in the development of the business, which is entering an exciting new chapter with its training services growing geographically.
“Health and safety training is an integral part of all industries and particularly the oil and gas sector.
“Therefore, when hosting training sessions, it is important to capture your audience’s attention to ensure they gain an in-depth understanding of key health and safety issues, and the practical steps that can be taken to counter them.”
