Walport USA Announces New Video Safety Service

Robert E. Negron, managing general partner of Walport USA (WUSA), Elizabeth, N.J., has announced a new safety service.

Short 45-second safety-awareness clips will be inserted prior to popular video movies that are in the Walport video service. The crew will then have the opportunity to see the safety clips in an entertaining resistance- free atmosphere, which should leave lasting impressions.

Some 40 safety topics will be covered, from wiping an oil slick on deck to leaving a knife in the galley sink. A minimum of dialogue is used, and multinational actors are employed to have universal appeal to all seamen.

Mr. Negron also announced the signing of a distribution agreement for the U.S. with Video-Tel world, renown producers of full-length safety videos. The three most current being "Industry at War"—how to defend your vessel against drug traffickers, produced in conjunction with U.S. Customs, "Alcohol Beware"— alcohol advice to seafarers produced in conjunction with Mobil Oil, and "Dead Ahead"—AIDS advise to seamen.
