Health and safety for video

The recent NUJ report on multimedia working in journalism highlighted health and safety (Chap 4) as an area that needed attention in the rush to digital, especially when it comes to video. Remember H&S isn’t just about avoiding trips on loose cables. It includes things like how long you are working and the quality of your physical working environment

I’ve been doing some reading around with a view to pushing this hard in the training I do and thought I would share some of the bits and bobs I have found. Obviously this stuff is tied to the UK legislation on this kind of thing so anything from other countries would be welcome. In the meantime here are some good resources.

I’ll add more as I find them.

One thought on “Health and safety for video”

  1. True, Health and Safety does have its better points, and i applaud their efforts to get better working conditions. But when H and S execs concern themselves only with not getting sued it starts to get a little silly.
