About Safety Bulletins
Recommended by Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee for the Motion Picture and Television Industry
Safety Bulletins are researched, written, and distributed by the Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee for use by the motion picture and television industry. The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee is composed of guild, union, and management representatives active in industry safety and health programs.
What are Safety Bulletins?
Safety Bulletins are guidelines recommended by the Safety Committee. They are not binding laws or regulations.
State, federal, and/or local regulations, where applicable, override these guidelines. Modifications in these guidelines should be made, as circumstances warrant, to ensure the safety of the cast and crew.
The Safety Committee and the Safety Bulletins are representative of the commitment of both labor and management to safe practices in the motion picture and television industry. The members of the Safety Committee and all those who contributed to its work have devoted a great deal of time and effort to these guidelines because of the importance of safety to our industry.
All Industry personnel have legal and moral responsibility for safety on the set or wherever they may be working. The Safety Bulletins may be reproduced and attached to call sheets or otherwise distributed to affected employees.

These Safety Bulletins were issued prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. In some cases, they may require modifications by productions in order to conform with current local public health guidelines. To help ensure the safety of cast and crew, this may include, for example: wearing face coverings, maintaining at least 6-foot physical distancing where feasible, enhanced cleaning and disinfecting of shared objects or vehicles, etc.
In addition to public health guidelines, please refer to the Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee’s “White Paper” and your company’s COVID-19 safety plan.
