The Mark Milsome Foundation - Film and TV Online Safety Passport Course

Mark Milsome was a talented respected and much loved camera operator who died on set behind his camera when a car stunt went tragically wrong in Ghana in November 2017. At the request of Mark’s wife Andra The Mark Milsome Foundation launched one year later with 4000 cast, crew and productions worldwide wearing Black Foundation T Shirts to mark the anniversary. www.markmilsomefoundation.com.

Due to the nature of Mark’s death, it was only a matter of time before the MMF started to focus on Health and Safety in the Modern Film and Television industry. In December 2019, Kirk Jones, Chairman of the Foundation started to research H&S training and discovered that very few crew or production have ever sat a modern Health and Safety course. The reason appeared to be ‘time’ and ‘money’ with a face to face course taking 2 days at a cost of approx £ 400 - 500.

A Health and Safety survey was launched industry-wide by the Foundation in the summer of 2020 to assess whether an H&S course would be welcomed by crew and productions. 5000 confidential responses and related experiences were assessed. All results and comments are available on the MMF website (www.markmilsomefoundation.com/supporters) but key findings included: 

  • 63% Believe the current H&S regulations need improving. 
  • 20% Do not believe H&S is adequate at all. 
  • 84% Say working hours, sleep deprivation, driving whilst tired was main H&S concern 
  • 80% Believe budget restrictions are to blame for poor H&S 
  • 22% Only say UK productions ‘always’ respect regulations 
When asked if crew and production would be interested in taking this Film & TV Online Safety Passport course (cost of £20 plus vat) 72% of respondents said they would voluntarily enrol on the course rising to 94% if it became recognised as an industry standard. Based on these findings, Kirk Jones started writing this course and the project went into production in October 2021 with the full support of the National Film and Television School and technical support from Media Safety Ltd.

The content of this and all our courses has been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines and come with a Certified CPD Statement as well as a ProTrainings Certificate and for online courses an Evidence-Based Learning statement. Successful applicants will receive a Production Safety Passport via Screen Skills valid for 5 years. 
Mark would still be with us today if this course had existed in 2017.  I strongly urge all crew and, very importantly, production, to take this course and make the industry a safer place. Do it for your families, for your colleagues and for Mark. This absolutely should become an industry standard”.
