We can provide dynamic filmed on-set risk assessments which are sent immediately to production staff and insurers.
OSSS are involved in planning stages with advice on building of sets and preparation of in vision and out of vision equipment (e.g. rescue equipment).
During filming we have safety measures to determine when it is acting or real life, and know when to step in.
