I remember watching this sort of video back when they were new. Even back then we could tell the body parts weren't very realistic. The flying gas bottle reminds me of Sharknado, though.

Did anyone have to watch 'Red Asphalt' in driver training?

I've been through a couple of iterations of Red Asphalt, both in driver's training and in some kind of week-long student government thing I attended. I recall being quite horrified by it at the time. It didn't work, though. Two weeks later I was out doing stupid shit in cars again.

Although the gas cylinder scene was comical, I've actually always been very leery of gas cylinders. We used a lot of 3,000-lb+ gas cylinders in the Army and I always handled them like they were a 60-year-old live bomb unearthed in London.

I have always been amazed at how far a gas bottle will fly. This film leads up to advocating the use of a safety bottle, but the bottle-guillotine stuff is fun.

Exploding hot water heaters can achieve an amazing trajectory, too.

Hey, thanks for reinforcing my fear of compressed gas cylinders, Tom. Must say fun video to watch, though!

They are only dangerous if laying on their side in the presence of a guy who's wearing a hockey mask and has an ax.

But how could you forget about Klaus?


I'm not in any kind of heavy industry but I still managed to find my way to this one and I think it's a good set of videos.

Okay, let's face it. These Klaus videos (while being more tongue in cheek) have to be considered the zenith of the Gruesome Industrial Training Films genre. Had me on the edge of my seat. I thought for sure he was going to impale the woman, not the guys. I still don't know how they pulled off the still-running chainsaw dragging the severed arm across the floor. True cinematic magic.

Nice find insan3guy!

Reminds me of a film shown at my Air National Guard basic training back in 1956. ( I know, it does date me! )

Not quite industrial, but gruesome anyway.
Showed a tractor trailer accident where the load of large pipes came through the cab. Showed a torso, without a head!

We all were around 18 - 20 yr's old. Kept me careful driving home that night.

Actually the Klaus chainsaw scene reminded me of my old Junior High shop teacher who taught us how to have tabletop belt sander races, where somebody was responsible for catching the still-running sanders when they left the tabletop, lest they drop to the floor and break, a result that was declared an unacceptable fate for a high-quality power woodworking tool. It takes a considerable amount of nerve and finesse to safely belly-catch a large and heavy all-metal belt sander attached to an extension cord and still running at full rpm's, taking advantage of 40-grit for traction and resultant speed. We're not talking some cheap-ass 1/2-pound mostly-plastic Black and Decker model running 220 grit.

Same teacher who, on the last class day of high school, let one of my classmates fire a "cannon" he'd constructed from of an old bored-out truck axle that used black powder and a firecracker fuse to shoot a .50 caliber lead ball. On its first (and last) firing, it did drive the ball into the screen of an old TV used as a target (just outside the shop squarely on school grounds) resulting in a satisfying "whoompf" sound and lots of broken glass, but also exploded, leaving several people standing "closer than they should have been" with embedded powder burns to their faces and arms. Nobody was wearing any safety equipment. "Damned lucky somebody didn't lose an eye." The affected persons would have made an excellent baseline for future Gunpowder Residue Testing.

It was the 1970's, though. We just thought it all was incredibly cool and immediately swore the incident to secrecy. We quickly picked up the desroyed TV, swept up the broken screen glass along with what was left of the cannon and threw it all into the trunk of a '69 Chevelle and disposed of it in some roadside ditch. Some inside the school had heard it, but we passed it off as a "backfire from a garden tiller engine we were trying to get started after overhauling it."

Today the courts would be clogged with lawsuits over such an occurrence. At said coach's funeral a couple of years ago, anybody in attendance who witnessed the cannon firing recalled the incident and all present said, "Hell, I never even told my wife about that shit. He could have been in some serious trouble." Fortunately, the blue/black pockmarks from the still-burning black powder particles that forcefully penetrated their arm and facial skin had faded over the years and were unnoticeable. One of them said, "I told my parents it was from somebody joking around and stabbing me with a lead pencil."

Ah, the good old days when safety was something you thought about after something bad happened..........Looking back on life, it's amazing I'm still intact and, for the most part, functional........
