||Film and television production: A risky business
||Feb. 2005, Vol.21, No.1, p.23-31. Illus. 8 ref.
||This study investigated levels of compliance with occupational safety and health (OSH) legislation in the film and television industry in the Australian state of Queensland. A questionnaire was distributed to workers in production companies and to freelance operators. Findings based on 100 responses reveal that many practitioners lack an understanding of OSH practices, fail to implement OSH programs, rarely conduct risk assessments, only sporadically provide OSH information and training and demonstrate low OSH morale. It is suggested that partnerships between industry, unions and educational institutions may provide the best method for improving the poor OSH culture in the industry.
