New! Unmanned Aircraft Systems Safety Bulletin

Actsafe has developed a new Motion Picture Safety Bulletin.

Safety Bulletin #36 is your blueprint to the safe operation of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UASs). More commonly known as drones, a UAS is typically a remote-controlled camera unit that combines the use of aeronautics, electronics, and wireless transmission technologies through the use of a remote-controlled or a programmable unit.

Have a look at our new Safety Bulletin #36 – UAS by clicking on the image below.

HAZARD ALERT – Truck Transmissions with no designated “Park” position

Incidents involving runaway vehicles have resulted in a worker fatality and other serious “near misses”.  A common factor in these incidents can be traced back to the type of transmission used in some trucks.  Please read our Hazard Alert for more information on the type of transmission that requires additional care, as well as suggestions on ways to ensure trucks are secured against rolling or moving unexpectedly.

2015 Board Appointments

At Actsafe’s Annual General Meeting on May 5th, 2015, a few changes to our Board of Directors were confirmed.

The AGM marked the last official meeting that Catherine Roome served as Chair of Actsafe’s Board of directors.  Catherine has been Actsafe’s Chair since May 2010.  In her time with Actsafe, Catherine has made key contributions in the organization’s growth.  Her strong leadership over the past 5 years has enhanced Actsafe’s reputation as a reliable, trustworthy source for safety resources and training in B.C.’s entertainment industries.

As we say goodbye to Catherine, we say hello Jeff Christian as Actsafe’s new Chair of the Board of Directors.

Jeff Christian

As a Partner at Lawson Lundell LLP, Jeff is a regulatory lawyer with a practice focused on energy and utilities.  He advises on regulatory requirements and processes, contractual and tariff matters, and regularly appears on behalf of clients before regulatory tribunals.  He is excited to be working with the Board, staff and stakeholders in executing the recently approved Business Plan and maintaining the momentum Actsafe has developed the last few years.  Jeff has been with Actsafe for approximately a year, serving as vice-Chair of the Board of Directors.  Congratulations Jeff of your appointment as Chair!

In other Board news, Actsafe is proud to announce Laurie Edmundson as the Performing Arts Worker Representative on Actsafe’s Board of Directors.  Laurie is a veteran of both the motion picture and performing arts industries in B.C., having worked in the set decoration departments in many film, television and theatrical productions.  She is currently the Secretary-Treasurer of IATSE Local 168 on Vancouver Island.  Welcome to the team Laurie!

And finally, we are pleased to announce that Motion Picture Worker Representative Dusty Kelly from IATSE 891 and Actsafe’s Treasurer  Cheryl Nex, Director-at-Large,  have both been re-affirmed as members of the Board for another term.
