Precautions to
Avoid the Risk
Ask for help carrying
equipment if needed,
take a break if it gets
too heavy and be
aware of the
surroundings.
Make sure they take
frequent breaks in
between editing and
sit in a suitable
position.
Make sure the
camera is in the
correct position when
being held and use
the tripod to support
the majority of its
weight.
Make sure that in
between filming,
actors and crew
members have
access to shade.
Also, if the day we
choose to film is
going to maximise
this risk, use sun
protection.
Make sure everyone
is informed that there
should be no liquid
near the camera and
equipment. If drinks
are needed, they
should be taken away
from the camera to
minimise the risk of

Dehydration

Actors / All

Make sure that our


budget is large
enough to cater for
drinks for the entire
amount of people
present.

Tripping and falling at


the beginning of
production when
actress is running

Actors

Make sure that there


are not any obvious
obstacles for the
actress to trip on
before the scene
starts. Make it very
clear that injury could
be caused and that
caution should be
taken as much as
possible.

2- This would not


provide a serious
threat, but it may
cause actors to lose
their concentration
which may
compromise the
quality of footage
gathered.
4- This could cause
serious injury to our
actress as she
would fall on a
concrete floor. Not
only this but as it is
a point of view shot
that is being filmed,
she is also likely to
damage the
camera.
