Recommendations for Managing Fatigue

This document has been reviewed by Actsafe’s Motion Picture Standing Committee and approved for distribution to British Columbia’s motion picture and television industry.

Humans are a day-oriented species and when we challenge that by working late into the night, there can be consequences.
The following recommendations will help you overcome those challenges and by doing so;
– Increase your personal health and safety
– Improve your family and social life
– Improve work performance
– Decrease your risk for injuries and ill health
– Decrease your risk for errors

Emergency Preparedness Plan

Across Canada, we face a number of natural hazards, which can vary from region to region. Knowing what to do is an important part of being prepared.

In our posters, you will find practical information on what to do in case an emergency should occur, including preparing an emergency kit, creating an emergency plan and what to do in the event of an earthquake or power outage.

Another great resource on emergency preparedness is Get Prepared.

Who Should I Talk to?

Reporting a hazard?  Looking for information?  Who should you call?

Finding out who to talk to about health and safety in the motion picture and performing arts industries in B.C. can get complicated.  That’s why we’ve come up with this little infographic to explain who to call, and when.

Who should I call image

 

 

 

 

 

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.
