National Guidelines for Screen Safety

Screen production is a unique industry, presenting unique workplace hazards. Film sets and locations can be stressful, high-risk environments, where people are asked to do extraordinary things. Most workplaces do not feature action stunts, pyrotechnics, animals, action vehicles, high voltage cabling and cranes.

The National Guidelines for Screen Safety have been drafted to provide advice on how to manage safety in screen industry workplaces and comply with state and federal workplace health and safety legislation as at March 1, 2021. You can download a copy of the Guidelines here.

These guidelines have been produced by the Media Entertainment & Arts Alliance (MEAA) and Screen Producers Australia (SPA). Produced with the support of Film Victoria, Media Entertainment & Arts Alliance, Screen Australia, Screen New South Wales, Screen Producers Australia, Screen Queensland, Screen Tasmania, Screenwest, South Australian Film Corporation.
