PGA SAFETY INITIATIVE
Share |

The Producer is ultimately responsible for the overall safety of their cast, crew and themselves on a production. It is the mission of the PGA Safety Initiative to empower producing team members to recognize and implement safe practices on film & television productions and to repair the disconnect between Producers and general production safety knowledge. The PGA Safety Initiative develops programming to educate producers in the regulations and responsibilities of protecting people, locations and equipment on their sets. In addition, by facilitating dialogues with experts in specialized and high hazard production departments and promoting safety information resources, producers are empowered to be leading advocates for safe filmmaking practices in the motion picture and television industry. The PGA Safety Initiative works to establish and reinforce trust between the Producing Team and their cast and crews.
