MAP Foundation, an innovative migrant workers’ support group based in Chiang Mai, has launched a short animated documentary on DVD to promote safety and health in the workplace aimed at migrant workers.

In a humorous but informative way, the 10-minute cartoon deals with the hazards that lurk in factories, construction projects and farms. The moral of the documentary is that migrant workers are particularly vulnerable to physical dangers and must take steps to protect themselves, for instance, by wearing protective clothing or by opposing reckless employers.

The cartoon is non-verbal and can be used by all language groups. MAP has also provided an activity guide to accompany the film in Burmese and Shan. Any person or groups that would like a DVD can contact MAP at [email protected] or call its Chiang Mai office (66 53 811 202). Known as the POSH (Promoting Occupational Safety and Health) project, the DVD is available for free, but donations are welcomed.
