"A NEED, AN INCIDENT, AND AN OPPORTUNITY SPARKED THE SIX-YEAR TRAJECTORY OF SAFE SET WORK FOR EVERY-BODY."
Safe Set Work for Every-Body (63 mins.) is an instructional documentary featuring the Welcoming Workplace and the Canadian Internal Responsibility System (IRS) as occupational safety factors both backstage and behind-the-camera.
By promoting a culture of safety among undergraduates and apprentices aspiring to a career in the entertainment industry, we hope to raise the standards of that sector’s behind-the-scenes human resources before a widening audience. Safe Set Work for Every-Body is a teaching tool for those responsible for the safety of young set workers.
Interviews with experts in the field and animated infographics contextualize live action scenery-shifting demonstrations. While the challenge of community inclusion among writers, directors, and performers receives attention, few recognize the devastating implications of exclusion among crews. The team members of Safe Set Work have resolved to address these through best practices in occupational safety, including:
- proper occupational wear
- posture and ergonomics
- the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OS&HA) and Regulations (The Green Book)
- classical set handling
- the Welcoming Workplace
- the Canadian Internal Responsibility System
All the while, our antic artwork has a little fun in tackling this cautionary subject!
