COVID-19 has created unprecedented impacts on the screen industry! Below are several links that we recommend to find the latest information, support and resources relating to regional productions and practitioners during this time.
The Australian Screen Sector Task Force, consisting of SPA, AFTRS, Screen Australia, the MEAA, state agencies, guilds, ABC, SBS, Ausfilm and a number of prominent production companies, have released a set of COVID-Safe Guidelines in consultation with the Commonwealth Department of Health and global law firm, Clyde & Co.
The Guidelines are intended to be a ‘live’ document which provides support and assistance to producers to eliminate and minimise the risks associated with exposure of personnel to COVID-19 while returning to work on production. Topics covered in the document include duties under WHS laws, risk management, control measures and incident management.
