News Assignment and Location Safety

Half Day Course

Description: This training course has been designed for all News staff both in television and radio to give an overall understanding of what are the basic acceptable safety criteria when working on location both domestic and abroad.

News crews generally run in when everyone else is running out. There is seldom time to write out a risk assessment so safety is managed by crews thinking on their feet and dealing with ever changing scenarios as they happen. This course is about developing that thought process and learning from those who have done it for years.

The course is suitable for the Producers, Directors, Location Managers, Unit Managers, Location Engineers, Broadcast Journalists, Correspondents, Resource Organisers, Camera Operators, Sound Recordists and Location Editors.
