The Mark Milsome Film and TV Safety Passport programme has been 2 years in development, it took into account an industry-wide survey and covers all areas that the Mark Milsome Foundation believes failed Mark Milsome in Ghana in 2017. The course takes 90 minutes and costs £20 plus vat and the Foundation asks that people consider taking it and spreading the word amongst friends and colleagues.
Chapters include Speaking Up, The Law, Working hours, Health and Safety Abroad, Mental Health, Bullying and Discrimination. It delivers a modern refresher for those with decades of experience and a focused learning tool for those stepping foot on set for the first time.
The course was researched, written and delivered by our chairman Kirk Jones with the support of the National Film and Television school and Media Safety. The aim of the course is to update and educate, to empower and protect crew and production and those who pass will receive a Skillset Production Safety Passport valid for 5 years. (All profits have been gifted to the Foundation and to Mark’s wife, daughter and parents).
