Expertise in Action
The film and television industry is a unique industry and therefore presents unique occupational hazards. The number of hazards for stuntmen and women are particularly high due to the physical nature of their role in creating visual effects. Since the risks in stunt work are high, every move and position must be correct to reduce risk of injury from accidents. Examples of practical effects include tripping and falling down, high jumps, extreme sporting moves, acrobatics and high diving, spins, gainer falls and other martial arts stunts. Our experts in this area are experienced professions who have been or are still involved within the stunt/ film industry either as a stunt person, choreographer or trainer and also have safety and risk assessment backgrounds.
