Lighting Ltd provides a lighting design service for the television
industry. Like most DoPs and LDs I do not have electrical or
rigging qualifications. All lighting plots submitted by me
should be treated as a guide and must be rigged by competent
persons. Anything marked on a lighting plot that is considered
unsafe must not be rigged and the LD contacted as soon as is
practically possible. Any verbal instruction that is not
considered safe must be questioned and a safe method of rigging
suggested as an alternative.
Lighting Ltd does not have any employees. I have public
liability insurance of £10m via BECTU.
hold Creative Industries Safety Passport (CRISP) no. 6644. This
followed intensive, evaluated courses in 2013 and 2016 organised by BECTU.
The qualification is accredited by the Institute of Occupational
Safety and Health. The passport is recognised throughout the
industry including the BBC, ITV and Sky. The course encourages
delegates to be pro-active in their own safety and the safety of others.
earlier I attended the BBC's Safe Working with Cameras and Lights
on Productions course and in September 2016 attended a BBC Safe
Management of TV Productions course. I am thus also the
owner of a Production Safety Passport recognised by Creative
Skillset. I have been on several other courses over the years
including the BBC's interactive safety course, a rigging and trussing
course, a scaffolding appreciation course and courses on risk assessment.
In January 2016 I completed the BBC's courses on Working With Children
and Data Protection.
