The first step in the risk assessment process is hazard identification.
Carrying out a script breakdown is one of the first opportunities for hazard identification. It also demonstrates that the production has directed its mind to the potential hazards associated with the project, at the earliest opportunity. The script breakdown can also highlight areas which might require significant resource allocation.
Another mechanism for early hazard identification is the analysis of drawings and sketches e.g. artists impressions/art department plans and drawings.
On a tech recce we will work in close cooperation with key production staff to establish the real hazards associated with the planned work. We will then complete a location safety sheet for each location and or a location safety reportfor the recce as a whole based on our service level agreement.
