If you’re casting for a factual entertainment production, in addition to considering your contributors’ physical safety and wellbeing, we strongly advise you to ensure they are comprehensively assessed for risks to their psychological health, safety and future wellbeing.
A Psychological Risk Assessment involves first of all establishing the risks which are inherent within the production, and the impact its likely to have on their life both during the making of the production, and following their participation. Then the individual needs to be assessed by a qualified professional in order to advise you on how you can best keep the individual psychological safe.
If you’re in production on a scripted TV series or film, our welfare services can help you ensure you have appropriately trained Welfare Officers available to support your production staff, cast and crew throughout filming. Our qualified Welfare Officers work on location and carry out regular pro-active welfare monitoring and inventories, and also provide support when it is most needed.
We can also provide fully adapted welfare trailers (which we affectionately call our Welfare Wagons!) so there is always a suitable space available for confidential counselling to take place, highly confidential note taking and meetings, medical examinations and other wellbeing consultations which can all be taken care of in privacy even on the busiest Unit Base.
