Health & safety measures for scenic construction and prop-making

The Advanced Training Course in “Health & safety measures for scenic construction and prop-making” is aimed at training skilled and updated professionals in all scenic construction techniques, consistently with the new regulations applicable to scenic construction sites and the health and safety planning procedures (PSC, POS and DUVRI).


Staging a performance or an artistic/cultural/political/trade union event today requires specific and effective skills. Knowledge of the applicable health and safety measures is a key requirement for working in audiovisual, film and art productions.
Staging a performance, in fact, can entail hazards arising from the artistic / direction needs, exposing the technical crew and performers on the stage, as well as the public, to the risk of physical injury. The purpose of the course is to teach, analyse and interpret the relevant complex and organic regulations. Understanding the applicable provisions is no easy task, which is why the teaching staff can provide all the assistance, information and insight to apply the law, compatibly with the setting requirements.
