To celebrate Actsafe’s 20th year in the business of helping to keep workers safe we’ve launched a new digital safety initiative, Actsafe Injury Prevention Week (AIP Week).  Each year AIP Week will highlight preventable industry injuries within different sectors of production work. This year’s week long campaign is entitled Back Here, Safety Matters and puts a focus on the leading causes of injury in BC’s motion picture industry and its workers, working on and around trucks.

Actsafe’s inaugural AIP Week begins the week of November 5th. During campaign week, Actsafe will provide productions with additional resources, with an aim to help employers, supervisors and workers address the theme of the campaign. In addition, film studios will feature large art installations drawing attention to, and creating conversations around, the resources necessary to keep a production’s crew safe around trucks.
