The Department for Culture, Media & Sport (DMCS) have announced that the TV & Film Industry can resume work following the easing of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) lockdown, subject to safe working practices and social distancing measures being implemented and adhered to. The Bottle Yard Studios welcomes this decision and are committed to assisting our tenants and visiting productions to return to a safe working environment.
These are exceptional circumstances and the industry must comply with the latest Government advice on Covid-19 at all times. As a multi-occupancy site, all occupiers, clients, tenants, staff, contractors and visitors have a collective responsibility to ensure that Government working guidelines are consistently adhered to. It is imperative that strict working practices are implemented to achieve our common goal to keep people safe and able to work.
‘The Bottle Yard Studios Covid-19 Site Operating Procedure’ document intends to outline a clear demarcation of responsibilities between the Studio and our Tenants and Productions. It has been signed off by Bristol City Council’s Corporate Health & Safety team.
Guidance within this document is based on a number of Government and industry issued guidance papers including Public Health England (PHE), World Health Organisation, British Film Commission, BECTU, pact and Bristol City Council. The document should be read in conjunction with TBYS’ Site Health & Safety Policy and Covid-19 Risk Assessment and used to develop your own / your company’s working Covid-19 Risk Assessment.
