Training Videos

Training Videos The company I used to work for hired an actor and film team and created 10 short (about 60 second) videos to promote records management within the company. They are a play on the Allstate Mayhem commercials – the lead character is Chaos and we all want to prevent Chaos with our records. Last year Mission Support Alliance (MSA) posted the original 10 videos on YouTube, you can find them by searching for MSA Records Management. These short videos are handy for training, and since they are publicly available, any other company can use the videos. The current video titles are:

  • Retire Your Records to Storage

  • Don’t Mix Personal Papers with Hanford Papers (note: Hanford is the DOE site where we are located)

  • Don’t Destroy Records

  • Records Created at Hanford Stay at Hanford

  • Store Records Properly to Avoid Disasters

  • Manage Non-Records Properly

  • Acceptable File Formats

  • Lost Records Waste Time

  • Complete Your Records

  • Update Your Inventory to Locate Your Records

MSA is in the process of creating 10 more videos that they will release in April, so these should be posted on YouTube at some point after that.
On a fun side note, I’m the “petite lady” in many of the videos according to the scripts…I was just glad it didn’t say “short old lady”…

You did a fantastic job with these! I thoroughly enjoyed them! I think you made records management a lot more fun. I was thinking about doing some training videos to streamline my program a bit, so these are some excellent examples. Would love any advice that you might be willing to share!

It was a fun group project. I could also mention that the company I am currently contracted to used some of the videos in their online training and built the “Keep Chaos from your Records” theme into their training script and it made for a nice presentation. Imagine my surprise when I joined the company and saw myself in their training material. Since the videos were created with government funds, there’s no copyright and anyone can use the material, so that’s a plus.

So, basically, you’re saying you got to watch your own 15 minutes of fame!


These are terrific, Deb. Great job!

Hi,

Great job on the videos. I watched them all; they are short, fun to watch and very engaging. A rare combination in many training videos.
