Health and Safety Information
These are a few of the Health and Safety risks we identified while planning our two minute
Tripping over Tripod - Tripping over the tripod that we use could be a real issue. The tripod
could very easily get in the way of our filming and someone tripping over the tripod could cause
a real issue to the health of themselves and others around them. Therefore to counter this issue
we will make sure that when using the tripod we inform the actors around us of where it will be
positioned so we do not get them into extra harm. This will hopefully counteract the health and
safety issue that is tripping over the tripod when filming a scene.
Traffic - As we will be filming our scenes by a road we have to make sure that we are aware of
traffic around us, being hit by a vehicle or any other oncoming traffic could create a serious
problem for us or the actors helping us, therefore to counteract the problems raised we will
inform all of our actors of the risks involved as well as making sure that we stay away from roads
while filming our scenes.
Hitting into people - As we will be filming on a public road there is still the possibility that
members of the public will be around during the filming process, we may get near or involved
with members of public including hitting into them while filming chase scenes, to prevent this
from happening we will make sure that we stay way from them and let them pass the filming
area before shooting a scene. This will prevent any further injuries to anyone involved.
Dropping the Camera - Dropping the camera during filming of a scene could be a huge problem.
If dropped the camera may break and lose footage collected earlier from a filming session. It
could also shatter which may lead to debris flying into people, another health and safety risk, to
prevent this from happening I will make sure that the camera is securely attached to the tripod
we are using at all times, this will mean the area is definitely safe from any equipment damages.
Slipping over - We will be filming our opening sequence in a public environemnt, this means we
may encounter objects of a hazardous ature around our filming location which could cause us to
slip and result in further injury. Therefore, to counteract this problem we will make sure that we
fully check the area around us before filming, this should give us a chance to check for
unreported spillages and incidents which could lead to further injuries for our actors and crew
Falling Down Stairs - We will be using the staircase a couple of times throughout the filming
process and is another big health risk. If you fall down the stairs, it could do serious damage to
the actor and could put the safety of others also at risk and the equipment in danger. To prevent
this risk, I will make sure that all cast and crew memebrs are told never to run down the stairs
and stay careful at all times in case a problem occurs.
