Your first responsibility as a producer is to provide a safe set for your crew and cast. You owe it to your team, your project and yourself to maintain a hazard-free production.

Our goal is to empower producers to be leading advocates for on-set safety. This half-day workshop will provide clear information and essential steps to take throughout prep and physical production in order to create and maintain a safe production environment. Producers will learn their role as part of the production safety team; pre-production collaborations with high hazard departments, proper risk assessment preparation for high risk production activities on non-fiction/docu-reality productions, and calling upon local resources to support and facilitate a safe set.

Producing team members will learn:

  • The scope of production safety and the importance of establishing safe practices
  • The Producer’s role as part of the safety team
  • How to create and implement a safety plan
  • Common Production Hazards: How to recognize and correct unsafe/hazardous situations
  • Best practices when working with High Hazard departments such as aerial & marine units, stunts and special effects
  • How to identify risks and extreme activities associated with news and non-fiction/docu-reality and high-risk productions
  • Insurance Risk Assessments:  What to prepare for and how to interpret them
  • Where to find production safety resources, information on local safety compliance requirements
