Abstract This collection of articles addresses the many occupational hazards that exist in show business and the performing arts, together with their means of prevention. The nature of the business of recorded and live shows is unusual by its occupations, its organization and its specific characteristics. Its workers are nonetheless exposed to various occupational hazards for which employers are required to implement preventive measures. Safety and health aspects need to be considered as early as possible and integrated from the very inception and preparation phases of a production or show.
