"Pull marble from bag " safety demo & other safety meeting routines

Is anyone familiar with the safety "game" where there is a bag of marbles with

different colors?  Each color represents an injury or near miss or death. There is a co-relation to the number of marbles to accident> IE:one death marble , numerous accident marbles and majority  "safe" marbles. The bag is passed around and you pull a marble... you get the drift.

How do you determine the ratio of marbles ? Does everyone pull or do you randomly pass certain number of employees? I have some ideas but want to get it right.

Other ideas for demonstrative games that get message across and make meeting informative but interesting would be great.

Thanks to all members for the good info , I really enjoy the posts and help from this site. One of my favorites!

Trying to keep this one alive, I would also like to do this in a safety meeting.

I have never heard of this before but after a little thought on it what I would suggest is using real statistics. For example we have 100 employees = 100 marbles total. Use last 12 months (or what you feel is needed) injury stats for injuries. Hopefully you have never experienced a death but I would throw in a couple for the effect. That opens the door to the company's personal history and brings the message home a lot better than using random stats.
Good idea. Training is always more successful when they enjoy it.
