Course Design Suggestions

Good Morning,

It was suggested to me that I submit a course I created here to see what design ideas that may come my way.  The course is ladder safety and I started it with the question, "Why do we need to be reminded about ladder safety?".  I followed the question up with a video that demonstrates why we should use ladders safely.  The suggestion I received was to not start off with the video because the audience may not make the connection between the question and the video.  I open to any ideas that will make my training better.  I am not the most creative guy out there.  Thank you in advance for your suggestions.

I think I knew what was going to happen in the video even before I played it. The title kinda gave it away.

I think I'd start with a question. Something like. From what height do you think most fatal ladder accidents occur? Then have some options from the chart. They'd obviously have to guess at the answer - but that's the point. They'd probably go for something higher. 6-10 feet I think would surprise most people. 

Then go on to ladders are the most dangerous - again this could be a ranking question based on what they think. Rank these from the most to least dangerous working at height...

I'd also have an answer for 'All other sources' - just because I'd want to know.
