New Zealand Screen Sector Health and Safety Guidelines
The Code of Practice for Safety & Health in the New Zealand Film and Video Production Industry (SCOP) as from the 4th April 2016 no longer applies as the Safety Code of Practice for the NZ Screen Industry.
ScreenSafe Limited is a Techos’ Guild project in collaboration with the NZ Screen Industry providing Guidelines for the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015.
Guidelines for the new Act are available on www.ScreenSafe.co.nz.
The Guidelines are divided into five sections
Section One Introduction
Section Two Outcomes
Section Three What You Need To Know At A Glance
Section Four Complying With The Act
Section Five Technical Guidelines
The original Part 3: Technical Guidelines of the SCOP, are in the process of being reviewed and rewritten. They are part of Section Five at www.ScreenSafe.co.nz. Until individual sections are completed these sections are still relevant. Please check the ScreenSafe website for updates.
The screen industry wishes to acknowledge the financial assistance of the New Zealand Film Commission (NZFC), New Zealand On Air, the Screen Production and Development Association (SPADA), New Zealand Film and Video Technicians Guild (NZFTVG), Screen Auckland and Screen Wellington in the development of these guidelines.
