Keep your team safe and your show running smoothly

Have you ever referred to “Macbeth” as “The Scottish Play”? Most people do so to avoid the fabled curse that has been blamed for accidents ranging from falls to burns to an accidental stabbing. Whether or not you believe in curses and superstition, there’s no denying that accidents in theatre can happen – many of them serious. But if you’re aware of the risks and properly prepared to keep your team safe (and yourself legally protected), you can move forward with confidence.

This 3-hour workshop with expert Janet Sellery will address the unique health and safety challenges faced by independent and community theatres like yours. Topics to be covered will include:
• Introduction to Health & Safety in the Theatre
• Health & Safety Law, Rights & Responsibilities (with a focus on volunteers)
• Risk Assessment
• Health & Safety for Stage Crew
• Best Practices
• Resources

You will leave ready to take initial steps towards a safer show, and empowered to make responsible decisions related to health and safety in your organization.
