New Working Alone video!
If you’ve been reading the Actsafe Newsletter recently, you may have noticed that we’ve run a few pieces on workers working alone or in isolation. It’s something that’s common in both film and performing arts and can have serious consequences if a worker becomes sick or injured and there’s no one available to check in on them. To help address the issue, we’ve produced a five minute video on Working Alone. Source :

Gut Feeling Can Prevent Accidents
A Pat Benatar benefit concert scheduled for Friday, June 21, 2013 was cancelled at the bequest of her stage crew. Upon arrival to the venue, an outdoor covered arena in Iverness, Florida, the crew was presented with a stage platform that they did not think was robust enough for the show. Rather than risk the potential for a structural collapse, they requested that the promoter have the stage structure inspected and reinforced. A local engineer was brought-in to certify the stage, but the caveats included with the inspection did not satisfy them in time to mount the show. Source : http://theatresafetyblog...
