Safety considerations

Read these points carefully.

  • You must maintain your own personal safety and that of your cast, crew and anyone else involved in the production of your video at all times.
  • You must not endanger anyone during the production of your video, and you must follow safe practices and procedures.
  • Your video cannot portray any unsafe acts involving live actors, and you are not permitted to depict with live actors any high-hazard risks such as working close to equipment in operation or working at heights, even to make a point or contrast safe acts with dangerous acts.
  • You must discuss safety issues with your supervising teacher or skills club coach before starting production. We strongly recommend that your teacher or coach is present when you film live actors.
  • You must conduct a safety talk, including a hazard assessment, on every day of filming.
  • If you are filming on a worksite, you must obtain permission of the business owner and/or manager, take all appropriate health and safety precautions, and follow all applicable health and safety rules and regulations.
