Health & Safety: Productions & Live Events

This was an accredited Health & Safety course for anyone working within live events and the television and film industry. Candidates walked away with an industry recognised certification that is often required for working in production and live events. The Production Safety Passport (PSP) is an industry-led scheme to support the mutual recognition of health and safety training in the live events and Creative Media Industries. From a moral and legal point of view this course gave attendees an awareness of the risks involved in the production industry as well as why and how we need to manage them.
