The Mark Milsome Foundation Film & TV Online Safety Passport Course is now live!



The course takes 90 minutes and costs £20 plus vat. It touches on all areas that we believe failed Mark Milsome in Ghana in November 2017 and attempts to update and empower crew to speak up to make sure accidents and deaths are no longer part of the industry statistics. Profits have been gifted to the Foundation, Mark’s wife, daughter and parents.


The course was conceived and delivered by our chairman Kirk Jones with support from The National Film and Television School and Media Safety Limited. It delivers a Production Safety Passport valid for 5 years from Screenskills and aims to ensure that no crew, production or cast member is ever injured or killed again because a risk on a Film or Television sets not effectively recognised, assessed, communicated or managed. Topics include Speaking Up, The Law, Working Hours, Health and Safety Abroad, Mental Health, Bullying and Discrimination, delivering a modern refresher for those with decades of experience and serves as a learning tool for those stepping foot on set for the first time.

Early comments include:

Mark would still be with us today if this course had existed in 2017. I strongly urge all crew and, very importantly, production, to take this course and make the industry a safer place. Do it for your families, for your colleagues and for Mark. This absolutely should become an  industry standard”.
