Live Theatre and Events Industry Survey 2018
Late in 2017, elected MEAA entertainment, crew, and sport representatives from across the live theatre and events industry decided to join together to build an industry-wide campaign to improve members' working lives across the sector. The first step is this survey. The survey provides a snapshot of the wages, conditions, and health and safety standards that crew, technical, front-of-house, and events workers in live theatre and venues are faced with every day. Some parts of the survey were developed in response to the 2017 Sexual Harassment in Live Theatre survey conducted by MEAA Equity,...
The Sustainability of an Occupational Skin Cancer Prevention Program
Objective: Sustainability of prevention programs is a public health goal. Methods: The effectiveness of Go Sun Smart, an occupational skin cancer prevention program, was evaluated 5 to 7 years out from the conclusion of a controlled randomized dissemination trial that compared an enhanced versus basic dissemination strategy at 53 ski areas enrolled in the trial. Results: Employees (n?=?2940) at ski areas in the enhanced condition reported fewer sunburns but did not differ from employees in the basic condition on other sun-protection measures. Significant differences for all sun-protection practices...
Working conditions of professional athletes
Professional athletes in Europe rarely have the benefit of collective agreements or social dialogue to help establish good basic working conditions and some form of employment protection. A study prepared by the sector's social partners, UNI Europa Sport Pro and EU Athletes, says that many have no formal employment contract at all, and lack of insurance or pension provision is all too common. In its conclusion, the social partners call on the European Commission to foster encourage social dialogue in the sector. Source : http://www.eurofound.europa.eu/ewco/2013/09/EU1309011I.htm
Stressors, Recovery Processes, and Manifestations of Training Distress in Dance
Dancers are expected to maintain consistently high levels of performance capability and to perform on demand. To meet these expectations, they subject their bodies to long hours of intensive physical training. Such training regimens are often combined with tight rehearsal and performance schedules, which over time can lead to persistent fatigue, psychological distress, performance decrements, and injury. A similar process has been observed as a consequence of high-intensity training in many different sports, and considerable sport-related research has been devoted to identifying the antecedents...
Work-related injury and ill-health among mountain instructors in the UK
In most industrialised countries, work-related injury and ill-health presents a major burden to society. Musculoskeletal disorders and stress are the most common reported illness types with those working in some industries more at risk than others. This study aimed to understand the occupational health issues of those working as mountain instructors in the outdoor sector within the UK and to identify the cultural norms and behaviours among this unique occupational group which influence health. Semi-structured, telephone interviews were conducted with 20 qualified mountaineers to gain information...
Performing Artists, Part 2
Work: A Journal of Prevention, Assessment and Rehabilitation . Volume 41, Number 1 / 2012 Performing arts health (PAH) as a field of research may be relatively unknown to some readers. It is my intent in this second editorial, therefore, to highlight some of the similarities and differences between this field and the field of work disability (WD), broadly construed (as in this journal) to include prevention, assessment and rehabilitation. Readers will be familiar with the significant economic and societal burden of work-related health concerns. In 1999, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimated...
Intermittents du spectacle et assurance-chômage
Retour sur un diagnostic convenu (1980-2003) Le système d'indemnisation-chômage des intermittents du spectacle est régulièrement présenté comme intrinsèquement déséquilibré. En favorisant la précarisation des emplois et la baisse des salaires, il provoquerait un recours toujours plus accentué à l'indemnisation, alimentant un déficit toujours plus important. Une analyse des données portant sur les années 1980 à 2003 révèle que le constat d'une baisse des...
The stability of tallescopes
The primary aim of this project sponsored by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) was to establish whether it could be considered a tolerable practice to move an occupied tallescope, in a theatre environment, for the task of focusing luminaires. This involves moving along a single lighting bar from which a number of luminaires are suspended, focussing each luminaire in turn, once all lights on this bar have been set-up the same process is repeated on the remaining lighting bars.

Self-Reported and Reported Injury Patterns in Contemporary Dance Students
Abstract: Background: Injury is a major concern among dancers, as currently rates are reported as being high. The purpose of the present study was to assess the incidence and details of injuries across an academic year at a full-time contemporary dance school. Methods: A questionnaire was distributed to 57 dancers at the end of their first academic year. Reported injury information was also retrieved from a database as collected from a physiotherapist over the same period. Results: Differences were found between the reported and self-reported information, particularly with reference to shin injuries...

Un quart de siècle de précarisation et d’explosion des déficits ?
Retour sur une théorie discutable à propos des intermittents du spectacle (1980‐2003) Ce document de travail fait le bilan des connaissances sur l’évolution de l’emploi, des salaires et de l’indemnisation du chômage des intermittents du spectacle de 1980 à 2003. En reprenant les données statistiques publiées par différentes sources de la manière la plus exhaustive possible, et en les confrontant entre elles, il apparaît que le diagnostic souvent émis – selon lequel les intermittents connaissent une...

Health Care Reform and the Health of Performing Artists in the US
Abstract: Health care in the United States is beset by three critical problems: cost, quality, and coverage. We have by far the most expensive health care in the world, spending about 17% of our Gross Domestic Product, or over $7,000/person; most other developed countries spend about 8 to 10% of their GDP on health care. Despite spending that much money, the health status of Americans is far from the best in the world. Underlying both problems is the fact that over 15% of the US population does not have health insurance,5 which means they do not have access to health care when it can be delivered...

Rock musicians’ work is heavy
The study indicated that the work of the Apulanta musicians could be classified as one with considerable strain – escalating to heavy strain during certain stages of the performance.

Prévention dans les arts du spectacle
Le monde du spectacle vivant et enregistré est un secteur professionnel atypique, de par ses métiers, son organisation et ses spécificités. Mais comme dans tous les autres domaines d'activité, ses salariés sont exposés à divers risques professionnels et ses employeurs sont tenus de mettre en oeuvre des démarches de prévention des risques. La prise en compte de la santé et de la sécurité se fait le plus en amont possible. Cette dimension doit être intégrée dès la conception et...
