Section B*

If you ticked any “Y” boxes in Section A,  then please complete Section B.

Hazard no:2Cabling
There is a risk that someone may trip on the cabling. Any cabling is important to cover or move as it can be a hazard if someone were to trip over them.Hazard no: 18 – Electrical cablesThere is a risk that someone may trip over the electrical cables or could be electrocuted. The electrical cables could also be faulty. This can be a hazard as someone could trip or get electrocuted/seriously hurt.

Control – To minimize this risk we can tidy up the cables by putting them in cable ties or remove any unnecessary cables.To minimise this risk, I can ensure all electrical cables have been PAT tested and have no faults. I can check the cables to ensure they are fixed and safe. I can use cable ties to tie up any cables that may get in the way. 

Communication –  I will warn all actors/actresses of any cabling beforehandI will warn all actors/actresses of where all the cables are/electrical cables and/or mains are so they are aware.

Hazard no:4Lighting
There is a risk that a light might fall or break or could be too bright. This is important to check any faults and ensure brightness is at a good level as it could be a hazard if it were to fall, explode or hurt someone’s eyes.Hazard no. 23: Actors and Perfomers:There is a risk that an actor could be sick on the day of filming or not turn up. It is important to check all actors availability and ensure they will be okay and have a back-up day if not. 

Check lighting’s PAT test and ensure lighting is suitable for all cast and crew. Check availability. There are enough actors to cover, if necessary, 

I will ask if all cast and crew members are okay with lighting. I will keep in contact with cast to ensure their availability and check if others are okay to cover, if needed.
