Hollywood Isn’t Always Glamorous: Staying Safe in the Film industry

California is one of the top sites for the film industry. Major studios located in the sunny state bring in jobs and tons of economic revenue. But the film industry can also be a dangerous one. Expansive sets, constant running around to capture scenes and equipment malfunctions happen daily. Having first aid and safety supplies on hand is critical.

Dangers in Hollywood

There are so many different people who can work on location at a set – from film crews, to producers and writers, hair and makeup, costume, and then the actors themselves. With this many people on location at any given time and working long hours, the need for safety precautions is greater than most workplaces.

If a movie set includes stuntmen, that risk runs even higher. But something as simple as tripping over a wire, having a special effects machine malfunction or choking on food while on set, can and have, all happened. And with filming budgets running high every day, these accidents are not something production companies want to tack on to their daily spend.

Safety Supplies for Film Studios

To ensure actors and film workers make it home safe every night and your film studio isn’t fined, sued or shut down, you’ll need to have proper first aid supplies on hand as well as training on safety and disaster preparedness for all employees. Consider having a Health and Safety Policy at your Film studio and coming up with a plan for tackling risks before they become a problem.

Working with OSHA and Cal/OSHA to meet standards is the best way remain compliant. In California for example, film sets must keep a log of any injuries that occur while working. The organization works to prepare industries for the most likely accidents as well as how to handle other, extraneous situations when they arise.
