OVERVIEW

It’s been a troubling time for our industry over the past few months but as we start to turn the corner and move towards making some great television, drama, and commercials we want to ensure that our kit and crews are providing you with the safest possible experience. We have introduced the following strict measures to keep our staff, customers and the wider public safe during this unprecedented time. The following has been written in accordance with Government and HSE guidelines as well as the joint TV Production Guidance.


OUR TEAM

As a company our first priority is to the safety of our staff. We have taken every measure to ensure a safe working environment. We have introduced the following measures:

  • We are currently operating on a reduced staff basis in order to minimise the number of staff on the premises. We will update this document when we are back up to full capacity

  • Any member of staff who has symptoms will be asked to remain home and self-isolate in accordance with government guidelines

  • We will ask any of our staff to remain at home for 14 days if they have a member of their household who has symptoms or has been contacted by the NHS Track and Trace

  • All staff are encouraged to regularly wash their hands

  • Face masks are available for all staff

  • Each member of staff has been issued with their own personal hand sanitiser

  • Staff have been trained on all of the new Covid-19 measures in this document

OFFICE AND WAREHOUSE OPERATIONS

  • On entering the building in the morning all staff will have their temperature taken and logged. We will ask any member of staff who has an increased temperature to return home and self-isolate

  • All contact areas such as door handles, kitchen and bathroom facilities, computers and printers will be regularly sanitised throughout the day

  • The office and warehouse will be deep-cleaned at the end of each week

  • Our staff are assigned daily roles of prep and de-rig as well as other duties. Our staff will remain in these roles throughout the day to avoid any potential cross-contamination

  • There are numerous additional sanitiser stations throughout the premises

  • All staff are allocated a workstation which are more than two metres apart

  • We have introduced limitations on the number of staff in certain areas throughout the office and warehouse
