Overview

“Working in TV and having to risk assess scenes filmed in water, this course has given me so much more confidence in both assessing risks and implementing safety measures, as well as when to employ specialist H&S professionals. I now understand how the dangers could escalate in certain situations for contributers and crew. I would really recommend this course.” Vicky Hoy, Producer - Clarkson’s Farm

Designed combining governing body Rescue 3’s over forty years of experience developing and accrediting safety and technical rescue courses with training provider Adventure Consultancy Worldwide Ltd's Director Anthony Eddies-Davies who runs the courses.

Adventure Consultancy has a proven track record working with production companies on shoot as location producers, safety cover & consultants, film fixers, logistics experts and production trainers in a variety of challenging locations and terrains. Our clients include the BBC, Netflix, Discovery Channel, National Geographic, Disney, Sky, Warner Bros and Amazon Prime. Most recently we have provided safety consultancy and cover for The Grand Tour's challenging series episodes in Vietnam/Cambodia & Mauritania and location producer for World's Most Dangerous Roads in Bhutan. 

Our tailored courses address the varied roles of production team members from researchers, production managers, producers/directors to camera operators, instilling confidence when researching, planning and working in different and potentially challenging location environments. Critically they teach what basic safe practices need to be implemented.

Participants gain an internationally recognised qualification valid for 3 years to add to their CV’s. Whilst not negating the need for specialist off-site safety advisors in the different stages of production, candidates will gain the knowledge to assess potential shoot locations at the outset, potentially saving time and money on recces to unsuitable locations, as well as ensuring better logistical and safety planning for recces and shoots.

Health and safety and insurance company requirements are increasing around the safety of shoots, and a more qualified production team and crew is a clear advantage when assessing and working in potentially hazardous locations.

Course Content

Over 2 days, based on our site on the beautiful Shropshire/Worcestershire border the syllabus delivers an understanding of safe systems of work, including risk assessments and other forms of pre-planning undertaken by off-site safety advisors.

The course also illustrates the realities of working on water based locations with on-site safety cover, and the capabilities of the safety teams and the equipment they’ll be working with. Practical skills for working safely in complex water environments, plus basic self-rescue, and techniques for rescuing a colleague are taught.

The course is a combination of classroom and working by and in water. All PPE, including drysuits are included in the course cost. 

Non-residential, although we do have very reasonably priced pod accommodation on site, as well as plenty of local options we can suggest. We also offer closed courses for Production teams a location to suit.
