I can't help with the Fortnite situation. I have no idea what that game entails. However some thoughts I was having when reading this was what about some mini games/scenarios. For example, if you are discussing a certain tool or have the students break up the tools and have them develop videos or whatever and have them teach the safety behind that specific tools. You could also have them create videos of certain situations... "what to do if there is a fire?" or "what to do if someone gets hurt?" and so forth. They could create videos and bring it back to the full class to watch. It could be a fun way to incorporate this.
The game Clue might be a good gamification idea for the safety unit. The students have to solve the mystery to determine the safe areas or unsafe areas of the shop. For extra points they describe how they can fix it.
I'm with Jenny on the Fortnite comment... No ideas there haha! I am thinking about how you can gamify safety. How about Safety Survivor? Split your class into teams and have them complete safety challenges (put on proper PPE for _______________, demonstrate proper use of power tools, etc). They're could be challenges for points, other ones for advantages on tests, or the winners get to use the tools first each day for a week, whatever you can dream up!
I completely redid my safety unit a couple years ago. I added a game for PPE where they have to do a relay race. I set out a set of coveralls, safety glasses, and welding gloves, they line up and then one by one spin around a broom stick and run down to the end and put them on as fast as possible. The kids love it! I also have the kids make a safety video at the end of the unit.
