Common Hazards
Motion picture and television film production often pose a number of unique fire hazards and risks to life safety as compared to routine fire hazards in commercial buildings because filming and other activities take place in temporary and varying locations. Common hazards are ordinary occurrences that might be associated with most commercial film productions. Examples of these fire and life safety hazards include blocked exits and emergency routes, electrical and lighting hazards, accumulation of combustible materials, smoking, welding and cutting operations, hot surfaces, combustible tents, and inadequate refueling facilities. Filming in remote areas or other countries can make these hazards an even greater risk due to inadequate fire fighting capabilities or the lack of direct and quick access to the filming location by fire fighting personnel and equipment.

Location Hazards
There are a variety of hazards related to filming on location. In cities, for example, old buildings and warehouses are often used. These buildings can present safety hazards due to unstable walls, broken staircases, falling ceilings, etc. In addition, there can be environmental hazards, such as crumbling asbestos insulation, left-over waste chemicals, and contaminated pigeon droppings. Possible hazards while filming on location in the country include insect stings, contacts with poisonous plants, accidents in mountainous areas, heat-related diseases in deserts, frostbite in cold weather conditions, and drowning in rivers and lakes. Drowning is not the only water hazard around rivers, lakes, oceans, swamps, etc. Other hazards can include poisonous reptiles, contaminated water, flash floods, boating accidents, hypothermia in cold water, and underwater hazards such as undertows and

hidden rocks. There is also concern about unusual local health hazards. For example, outdoor filming in many parts of the Northeast could mean having to take special precautions against Lyme Disease caused by deer ticks. In foreign countries, there would be concern about vaccination requirements, possible current epidemics or other local endemic diseases (such as dysentery and typhoid), contaminated water supplies, etc. In addition, local political instability and street violence are causes for concern. Traveling to location is also a serious hazard, since four of the fatalities discussed above involved helicopter travel to the location.

Preproduction Hazards
The construction and painting of sets - whether in a studio, or on location - can involve a wide variety of health and safety hazards. Construction can involve accidents with scaffolding, ladders, machinery, vehicles, welding equipment, electrical equipment, etc. In addition, welding, wood dust and scraps, flammable solvents, and other combustible materials can present fire hazards. Scenic painting presents many health hazards due to exposure to hazardous solvents, paints and other coatings, dyes, fire retardants, polyurethane foams, and a wide variety of other chemicals. While these hazards can be minimized with proper ventilation in a scenic shop, often fabrication of sets and props on location is difficult to ventilate adequately.

Filming Hazards
As discussed in the section on Fatality and Injury Statistics, stunts are the main single cause of fatalities in motion picture production. A stunt can be defined as any action sequence that involves greater than normal risk of injury to performers or others on the set. A SAG analysis of films in 1982 found that major causes of injuries and illnesses were falls, smoke and chemical inhalation, auto accidents, fight scenes, equipment failure, horses, and motorcycles. Most of these are stunt-related. Other filming situations which would be considered stunts because they could involve an increased risk of injury or illness include: being a passenger in a stunt car, driving a background car or being a pedestrian in a car chase scene, heat exposure during a desert scene, cold exposure during repeated filming of a scene involving a walk in a cold mountain stream, and underwater or swimming scenes. A major cause of the increasing number of fatalities and accidents involving stunts has been the demand for realism and increasingly more dangerous stunts. For example, 9 of the 21 stunt-related fatalities since 1980 involved helicopters, one example being the death of stunt performer Clint Carpenter while filming "Hired to Kill" in Corfu in 1989. In past years, many of these

helicopter scenes would have been simulated - not live action. Even normal filming sequences involving helicopters is hazardous, since 8 of the 9 ordinary filming fatalities involved helicopters (the other involved an airplane). The lack of proper emergency medical care has also been a contributing factor in several filming fatalities. This is typified by the 1983 death of famed stuntman Dar Robinson while filming a motorcycle sequence in Arizona. There was not adequate on-site emergency medical care, nor any provision for emergency evacuation. After waiting about two hours for an ambulance, the film crew loaded him into a station wagon and started driving towards a local hospital. He subsequently died. Medical experts have said that Dar Robinson might have survived and recovered had he received immediate attention from a qualified emergency specialist, had proper and timely emergency transportation, and treatment at a properly staffed and equipped emergency room. Such poor emergency medical care is not restricted to remote location filming. In filming "Sanctuary" in New York City in 1988, two stuntmen got glass in their eyes during a scene involving windows exploding from machine-gun fire. Because advance arrangements had not been made, they had to wait over two hours in the emergency room of a hospital before being treated. Although advance arrangements will not guarantee quick treatment if more serious cases are present, lack of these arrangements can result in delayed medical treatment.

Special Effects Hazards

Special effects can include fire, pyrotechnics, firearms, fogs and smoke, rain and snow, lightning, lasers, wind and sand storms, computer and model simulations, and a multitude of other situations. The most dangerous types of special effects involve the use of fire, pyrotechnics, and firearms. Many of these special effects scenes are also stunts since actors are involved. The death of Vic Morrow and two children during the 1982 filming of "The Twilight Zone: a Movie" involved a special effects explosion which caused the helicopter to crash onto the actors. Other types of hazardous fire and pyrotechnics special effects include car explosions, simulated bullet hits, burning buildings, flames, flash pots, etc. Firearms are also a potential hazard, whether live ammunition or blanks are used. In 1984, the actor Jon Eric-Hexum accidentally killed himself when he pointed a blank-loaded gun at his head and shot himself during the filming of the TV Series "Cover-Up". There have been many other accidents involving supposedly "safe" blank ammunition. Smoke and fogs used on the set can create respiratory irritation, which, although obviously less dangerous than pyrotechnics and similar special effects, can cause serious asthma attacks and short-term irritation, necessitating production

delays. Other special effects can create specific hazards. Examples are the use of lasers, electrical equipment, and chemicals to create specific effects.

Camera Crew Hazards

As described earlier, 5 of the 30 stunt-related fatalities were camera operators. The camera crew can often be at high risk in stunts because they are so close to the action, or even part of it. The classic example is the 1980 death of Rodney Mitchell and the injuring of 8 others during filming of an episode of the "Dukes of Hazzard". The TV camera truck carrying 12 crew members overturned during rehearsal of a car chase scene. Actual stunts are not the only risk to the camera crew. During normal filming, cameras can be located on moving vehicles, fixed wing aircraft, helicopters, scaffolding, overhead cranes, mobile elevating devices, boats, etc., which can involve risks of equipment failure, falls, collisions, and other accidents.

Medical Emergencies
Stunts are not the only cause of major traumatic accidental injury that can result in death and disability on a set or location. Falls, machinery accidents, falling sets, non-stunt related motor vehicle accidents, etc. can also occur. Of course, many of these accidents can result in minor injuries and in lost time. In addition, medical problems, both major and minor, can arise, and preexisting chronic medical problems can be exacerbated. Examples can include asthma attacks, heart problems, appendicitis, colds, infections, and insect stings. These types of medical problems can affect anyone on the set. The greater the number of people on the set, the greater the chances of someone becoming ill or being injured. A major factor in determining the outcome of such medical emergencies can be the quality of local medical care. Another factor can be the time to reach adequate medical facilities. Even in a major American city like New York City, this can be a problem due to traffic and slow ambulance response time.

In rural areas or in many foreign countries, the local level of medical care might not meet modern medical standards, or the time to reach medical care too long. In such situations, adequate on-site medical services would be necessary. For example, during the 21-day shoot of the James Bond film, "The Living Daylights", in the Moroccan desert, the on-site medical team treated 496 patients, at least 9 of whom would have had to be immediately evacuated if they were not equipped for on-site surgery. Aside from the serious danger of loss of life or health, such injuries and illnesses can result in enormous cost increases associated with delays in production, canceled projects, possible lawsuits, costs of health care, increased workers' compensation rates, lawsuits, and, of course, budget overruns. This can affect the production company, distribution company, insurance companies and everyone on the stage or location.
