Abstract Artistic, technical and administrative occupations in entertainment services represent over 850 types of job. The most common accidents in this sector consist of falls on the level, accidents related to manual handling and falls from heights. Musculoskeletal diseases are the most frequently-compensated occupational diseases. The French National Council for Entertainment Occupations (Conseil national des professions du spectacle) has instituted a commission assigned with the task of developing and promoting the prevention of occupational hazards as early upstream as possible during the planning and holding of events. The specific aspects of this sector require enhanced medical surveillance, particularly among freelance entertainment services professionals.
