Mark Milsome – Film and TV Safety Passport launches December 15th
After two years of research and with 72% of responses to the Foundations industry wide survey saying they would take the course, we will delivered the first Industry specific, online Health and Safety course for a cost of £20 + vat.
The 90 minute course was conceived and delivered by our chairman Kirk Jones and delivers a production safety passport from Screenskills. It aims to ensure that no crew, production or cast member is ever injured or killed again because a risk on a Film or Television set is not effectively recognised, assessed, communicated or managed.
Chapter headings include Speaking Up, The Law, Working hours, Health and Safety Abroad, Mental Health, Bullying and Discrimination. It delivers a modern refresher for those with decades of experience and a focused learning tool for those stepping foot on set for the first time.
Delivered with the support of the National Film and Television school and Media Safety Ltd the aim of the course is to update and educate, to empower and protect crew and production.
(All profits have been gifted to the Foundation and to Mark’s wife, daughter and parents).
