HEALTH & SAFETY
Retained client contracts
In line with HSE legislation, all organisation's must have a “competent source of health and safety advice”. As a globally experienced provider with Graduate level advisors, MSS offer this service as part of a retained client contract where we operate as that source of advice under a yearly retained client contract. Find out further information.
This service offers our clients a number of benefits, including:
- Audit of existing H&S policies.
- 24 hour telephone and email assistance.
- Access to a number of guidance documents and risk assessment templates.
- 5% discount of additional MSS services including Fire, Paramedic and on location Safety advisors.
- Immediate updates on changes in safety legislation and best practice, that may affect you and your business.
In addition to these standard agreement benefits, the MSS scheme is uniquely flexible to your requirements. If you have specific needs or services, just let your dedicated advisor know and we will develop a scheme that best suits your needs.
Many of our clients have discovered that the yearly retainer fee often
pays for itself with the 5% discount available on our other services, and with a proven track record of supporting over 2000 projects across almost 60 countries we understand how productions / events work and the levels of support required.
Production and Event Safety Advisors
Our Production and Event Safety advisors have a huge amount of experience working on productions for the BBC, ITV and Sky as well as US studios such as Paramount, Universal and Disney / Lucasfilm. From the tech recce to the wrap party, we understand the process and problems a hectic production face. We use our confidence within this role to safely offer the solutions to enable the required shot to become reality!
Whether its production risk assessments and policies, event SAG meetings or on location support and coordination, the recommendations and credits we’ve earned on some of the highest profile films and events in the world speak for themselves.
Working at Height safety
With many of our team proudly supporting International Search & Rescue operations as well as the UK Fire & Rescue service we have a wealth of experience in operating safely at height using our emergency services and IRATA qualifications.
To aid the creative process we can rig and assist with the safely placing of Cast & Crew at height. Whether it’s a camera operator filming off the edge of a Skyscraper or Cast filming a scene on the top of Nelsons column, we have the experience to work with you developing the scene in a safe and controlled manner.
For higher risk action and stunt scenes we can support the activity by providing a full Paramedic aerial rescue crew with the abilities and equipment to safely rescue personnel from mid air or at height.
Training and Equipment Hire
Using our experienced Instructors, MSS can provide training courses bespoke to your requirements in subjects such as:-
- Emergency first aid
- Manual handling
- Working at height safety
- Fire warden and extinguisher use
We also offer equipment hire, enabling you a cost effective and efficient way to ensure you are covered and operating within legislation. Our Assessors can also service and maintain your existing equipment, leaving you to concentrate on your Productions requirements. For longer running productions we can offer the services of our mobile Safety Support Trailer Unit, which can be based on location as a cost effective store. From high visibility vests to hearing protection, fire extinguishers to safety harnesses we are able to supply the required safety equipment for the shoot, efficiently providing the exact amount of kit required.
