This quarter’s theme is Slips, Trips, and Falls.

Slips, trips, and falls are some of the most reported injuries in the arts and entertainment industry year on year, and many of these accidents could be prevented if you paused and looked around your workspace before starting your work. 

In this edition of the Safety Scene, we present to you some valuable information to help you understand the risks of not wearing appropriate footwear, the need for proper inspections, and what you can do to eliminate those preventable injuries. We’ll even show you how doing something as simple as taking five minutes to properly assess your worksite can help keep you and other workers safe. These articles have been carefully written to share experiences and advice so that everyone can learn and make a positive difference in their workplaces, making sure everyone goes home safe at the end of the day. 

We want to hear from you!
