In order to ensure the health and safety of our
people during the continued pandemic we have carefully assessed the risks of
COVID-19 during production with reference to government and industry guidance.
In order to reduce those risks identified, as far as reasonably practicable, we will
implement a package of control measures that will be in place during all stages of
How we are keeping people safe.
■ Travel - seeking to minimise travel requirements and follow social distancing
principles within travel arrangements, wherever possible.
■ Location - considering the physical capacity of space used, given the
requirements of social distancing, as well as ensuring the provision of adequate
■ Work Activities - considering the activities that people are going to need to
undertake across roles in a production and if these can be adapted or changed to
■ Work Equipment - managing the sharing of work equipment which is key to
production from cameras and headsets to edit suites. Focusing on good hygiene
and managing potential issues with touchpoints.
■ Catering and Rest Areas - reconfiguring catering provision and planning breaks
to ensure our people are as safe as possible.
■ First Aid and Emergency services - planning activities to reduce the risk of
requiring emergency services to be called as well as advice to first aiders on
■ Masks, Gloves and Other PPE - as per the APA COVID Shooting and Office
■ Mental Health - the COVID-19 risk and the response has had a potential Mental
Health impact for those working on productions which should be considered.
Those having to work at home may feel isolated with those on set perhaps feeling
fearful and anxious of the virus.
■ Monitoring - compliance will be monitored and if required people will be reminded
of the new COVID-19 working practices (such as social distancing).
