WHAT'S NEW - COVID-19 Production Manual - The Yellow Book

COVID-19 Production Manual - 'The Yellow Book'

Our new production manual - 'The Yellow Book' sets out the detailed measures we advise should be taken by all productions to both operate safely and ensure compliance with the current COVID-19 control restrictions.

The Manual builds on our previous guidance and the recent protocols published by broadcasters and the BFC.  It aligns with those protocols and provides more detailed information about how COVID-19 risks should be controlled within specific production activities and departments.

It has been compiled by our team of experienced production safety consultants and in collaboration with medical, microbiological and production experts. 

The COVID-19 pandemic is an evolving situation and the manual will be updated on a regular basis as knowledge and best practice develops.
