This online course is aimed primarily at those starting out on a production and in a non-managerial role. It will act as a precursor to the Safe Management of Productions face-to-face course for those with designated responsibilities for formal risk assessments.
To enable programme makers to fulfil their due diligence requirements for risk assessment training. The course also aims to raise the awareness of health and safety on a production shoot, encourage crew to recognise when something is wrong and to change personal behaviours and attitudes towards health and safety while at work; to encourage behaviour-based safety.
Duration: 90 minutes typically
The course concentrates on the practical aspects of safely setting up and managing a location:
- Roles and responsibilities in programme making, both within the production team and those outside
- The potential pitfalls of risk management and how these may impact upon the programme making process out on location
- Application of risk management principles using real-life case study examples
- How to establish and maintain control through clearly defined occupational risk roles and responsibilities
Aims & Objectives:
- A broad overview of the risk management issues to be considered on location during the making of programmes, including hazard identification, risk assessment and good health and safety management
- The opportunity to analyse and discuss the risk management techniques used on location including hazard identification and risk assessment
- Discuss good health and safety management and best practice
- Information about risk management policy and procedures, including how productions should interact with their contractors, third party owners and others
- To provide information about the legal framework
The assessment approach is formal and recorded with a 70% pass mark which must be achieved before the course can be marked as complete. The questions are a combination of multiple choice, drag and drop and true or false. Questions are set within realistic production-related contexts.
