As South Africa begins to reopen production nationwide, CPA South Africa put together guidelines to create safe working environment. Below is the introduction to their new rulebook:
As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and its impact on our country and the world we understand the necessity to create a new working protocol.
We will work within the guidelines put forth by Government and Health Authorities to ensure that there are safe working distances, screening protocols, and that proper hygiene measures are in place.
The aim of these protocols is to minimise exposure and thereby limit the spread of COVID-19 whilst maintaining a functional film industry.
This document is intended to supplement Government guidelines based on the risk adjusted approach at the respective levels 5 – 1. The aim is for the control measures listed to be used as best practice to protect the safety of all those who work on film sets. Many of the measures listed herein are rooted in good film-set discipline, and should be readily adaptable.
