CW Blog Task 4 – Health and Safety

Health and safety checks are essential in ensuring an efficient and professional environment to work in. Even though some of these hazards may seem like common sense it is just wise to complete and make sure everyone is aware because if someone gets hurt it effects the show and the institution definitely does not want to pay compensation for a little slip that could of been prevented.
Common Hazards of working in a TV studio are:
  • Tripping over cables – having a cable basher
  • spilling liquid on equipment or slipping because of liquid – No food or drink
  • dropping heavy equipment – Do not carry equipment by yourself
  • lifting heavy equipment – Do not carry equipment Screen Shot 2016-05-18 at 7.08.04 PM.pngby yourself
  • electrocuting yourself – Don’t play with wires if you aren’t trained
  • Fire/Over heating – Have a practise fire drill so everyone knows what to do incase.

I have filled out a risk assessment form for if were were going to do a coke and mentos trick in the studio. Especially because we are dealing with liquid inside the studio we have to make sure that all procedures are in place for a smooth running show.
