As colleges begin preparations for the new academic year, the Foundation is launching a campaign, led by our Patron Rory Kinnear, urging them to include a health and safety course in their curriculum. By offering the MMF course to educational institutions at a discounted rate, our goal is to ensure widespread accessibility, thereby empowering and protecting new entrants into the film and TV industry.
To facilitate this effort, each college will have access to a specially designed dashboard to track progress and monitor course completion. The course delivers a level II Production Safety Passport which is valid for 5 years from ScreenSkills and aims to ensure that no crew, production or cast member is ever injured or killed again. As Rory emphasises, “No one should die for a shot. And nor should it even be a possibility ever again.”
According to Jon Wardle, Director, National Film and Television School “It is by far the most engaging, modern and relevant Health and Safety course for students we have found.”
Sean Savage (Game of Thrones) says “The Mark MIlsome Health and Safety course is the best thing to happen to UK film crew for a long long time.”
Andrew Dunn. BSC. AMPAS. BAFTA. (Gosford Park, Precious, Crazy Stupid Love, The Butler) urges “all of you to complete the MMF Online Health & Safety Course, it will prove invaluable to you and deliver a long, happy and safe journey along your chosen route to filmic nirvana.”
