In pursuit of our goal to prevent injury and illness, the Production is committed to
communicating to all employees all known or reasonably foreseeable health or safety
hazards to which they are likely to be exposed by their work.
Department Heads / Supervisors should hold meetings with their crew members to review
general safety issues and discuss any concerns, as necessary. These meetings should be
Potentially hazardous situations must be clearly identified on the call sheet for each day's
shoot (e.g., planned explosions, helicopter use, fire, stunts, special effects, etc.). If
appropriate, a Code of Safe Practices, Industry Safety Bulletin or other special notification
addressing the particular hazard should also be attached to the call sheet. In all cases,
every attempt should be made to completely eliminate any hazardous situation before it
becomes a danger to the cast and crew.
If the crew has moved to a new location or if there are scenes involving stunts, special
effects, aircraft, wild animals, or other potentially hazardous conditions, a hazard specific
safety meeting should be held and documented on the production report. If a preplanned
safety meeting is held on set, this meeting should be documented on the daily call sheet
and on the production report. Safety meetings are required to include all appropriate cast
and crew members, including extras.
Cast and crew members must be able to express their concerns regarding health and
safety matters without fear of reprisal. A Safety Hotline has been established for this
purpose. If at any time any cast or crew member voices a concern about their health and
wellbeing or about any safety or related issue, it should be taken seriously and if
necessary corrective action taken immediately, or handled as quickly as possible if it is not
A complete copy of IIPP and a copy of the applicable Federal, California or state safety
and health regulation will be available to all employees upon request. Copies of this IIPP
will be made available by the Production Office Coordinator or a member of the AD
Department, at the production office, stages and on location.

Posting of safety related documents aids in the communication of information. It is recommended that safety bulletin boards be placed near craft service for production and in a practical location for sets under construction. It is also recommended that the construction medic and the Supervising Medic be responsible for placement of this bulletin board and its movement from location to location. At a minimum, ensure that the following documents are posted:
- OSHA or Cal/OSHA or applicable State Plan Safety and Health Protection On The Job Poster
- Cal/OSHA Operating Rules For Industrial Trucks Poster
- Accident/Emergency Notification Information
- Safety Hotline Poster
- Safety Data Sheet (SDS) Poster
- Relevant Safe Work Practices / Safety Bulletins
- Other Important Production Safety Information
The Safety Data Sheet (SDS) hotline is (888) 362-7416.
The Safety Hotline is (800) 461-9330.
The Safety Hotline and Production Safety Department contact information should appear on all call sheets.
