Protecting the most vulnerable workers
An information summary for productions on addressing risks of labour exploitation
This information pack sets out our expectations for TV productions in terms of how they have oversight of and behave towards the most vulnerable workers on set, including those that work in set construction, facilities, cleaning, catering, security and transport. The broadcaster members of the TV Industry Human Rights Forum expect productions to take responsibility for all workers on productions, not only those for whom they have direct legal responsibility.
The pack includes summary guidance on:
Getting the culture right
Vetting suppliers of labour to TV productions appropriately
Behaving well in supplier relationships
Supporting ancillary workers directly
Responding to and remedying issues identified
For each of these areas, more detailed guidance is available if needed, downloadable from the links below.
The pack includes a checklist for productions to identify the steps they will take pre-production, during production and post-production.
