Every production involves a unique combination of locations, environments, stunts, cast and crew therefore each production needs to be assessed individually. Our fire risk assessments and health and safety assessments identify the hazards that a production may face on set, location, environment and stunts we then provide recommendations for eliminating or mitigating and controlling those risks. Our team will assist your producers to make decisions that allow them to set a budget for a safe workplace and minimize the chance of costly delays or shutdowns.
Once the fire risk assessment is complete our fire safety advisors can provide a consultancy package which can make sure you are compliant with legislation during your production regardless of the size or length.
