The British Film Commission has published its guidance, called ‘Working Safely During COVID-19 in Film and High-end TV Drama Production’, following an extensive consultation with several key organisations such as Pact, BECTU and the Production Guild, as well as industry experts across the UK and the US.
The extremely detailed report has been developed to help the physical production industry to protect crew and cast by adopting a safe working environment and practices in light of COVID-19 related risks, as well as the latest government advice, and to be able to factor in changes to their current health and safety assessments to achieve this.
It includes considerations for filmmakers at every level of budget, and is intended to be scalable, allowing each production to apply the guidance to their specific project’s needs.
Full guidance can be found here.
