Powerpoint technical Report

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

PowerPoint Technical Report Health and safety In Workplaces My task was to produce a professional industrial PowerPoint, aimed at experienced workers; the aim of this PowerPoint was to equip both employers and employees, with full knowledge of the effects computer use can have upon workers, and to help them to prevent any personal or environmental hazards. In this report, I will attempt to explain the processes I went through to produce this presentation. Step 1 In order to create a presentation with a rounded knowledge of the health and safety in workplaces, I firstly gathered all of my research together, before beginning my presentation; I did this by making a bulleted list in Microsoft Word, of the points I was going to expand on: I collected my information from numerous different resources; below is a list showing the different information sources used: o www.healthycomputing.com - this website presented me with facts about health risks, and what type of equipment should be provided to support the worker, to prevent any health hazards. o www.bitesize.co.uk - this site supplied me with the law about computer related work, and the procedures employers should take, to ensure that their work force is working under the suitable conditions. o www.physiotherapy.asn.au - this web link provided knowledge about a workers daily routine; expressing the procedures employees should take, to ensure they do not cause any health hazards to themselves, e.g. it is vital for workers to take regular breaks, to prevent eye strain. o The book "stretching" by Bob Anderson - this book displays stretches and relaxing routines, which will help the employee to relax and refrain themselves from receiving any computer-related injuries for example repetitive strain injury. o www.youtube.com - I used this site to upload two videos into my presentation; one which taught employers about how computer related ill-health could affect their business, and another presenting a workout which employees could work to each day, to prevent any damage to their body, and to relieve them from any work-related stress. ...read more.

To set the font size/colour I did the following: 1) I high-lighted the text I wanted to modify, then I scrolled up to the top toolbar and clicked on the scroll bar, which displayed "font size" when hovered over, and clicked on the specific font size I wanted. I decided to make my information size 16, as it will be big enough for workers to see without much strain; as if the font size was too small, it could possibly force the reader to strain their eyes in order to read the text, which can cause numerous health risks. However if the font size is too large, then it may prevent the presentation from looking professional. Additionally, I chose to make titles size 28, as it makes them stand out from the other text, which makes it easier for the reader to recognise what that particular slide is about. Furthermore, I chose to make all menu listings size 24, as it separates that particular text from the text on previous slides, therefore showing the viewer that they are going to learn, about something different from what they have just read about, and emphasising/high-lighting the key areas they are about to read about, and also emphasising that it is a menu page rather than a normal information page, and a bigger font size implies this. 2) After that, I chose the colour I was going to make my text; I high-lighted my text once again, but instead I clicked on the "A" symbol in the top right hand corner of the toolbar. I decided to make my text white, so that it will stand off the page and won't strain the readers eyes in order to the read the text, for if the text colour and background colour are similar shades or don't work well together, then often it can be harsh on the reader's eyes, leading to eye strain. ...read more.

Conclusion

1) Then I scrolled down to where it says "slide transition . " 2) After that I chose the transition I particularly liked. 3) I did this to every slide, until I was happy with the result. Finally, to split all the text up I decided to include videos. I included these into my PowerPoint by doing the following: 1) I inserted an action button through auto shapes and right clicked. A menu bar appeared and I scrolled down to where it said "hyperlink." When the grey box appeared, I clicked on the drop down menu next to where it said, "Hyperlink to..." I scrolled down to where it said URL and then typed in the website address which the video was located on. The videos explained the effect computer related ill-health could cost your business organisation and stretches you can do to prevent computer related ill-health. I thought they were very important for both employers and employees to know, and also it added interest to the slide show, as it was different from the slides of text presented on previous slides. To receive feed back on my PowerPoint to see how I could improve it, I decided to create a questionnaire for my peers to complete, so that I could improve certain areas of my presentation. Here is a copy of my questionnaire. From doing this questionnaire, I decided to include more pictures to break up the text, to make it more interesting for the viewer to read. I believe that questionnaires are a good way to evaluate you presentation and understand how you can improve it also. In conclusion, I thought my presentation was appropriate for my target audience and was good all round. If I was to improve my presentation I would add more images and do my voice over in a better environment, so there is no interference. ?? ?? ?? ??
