Student Project, filming a variety of scenes through day into night (early evening)
where our characters walk from location to location, engage in narrative, drug deals
& short fight sequences.
Hampton Road Underpass, ME14 5QW
The exterior location offers minimal fire hazards and easy exit / access routes either
side of the underpass. If one exit or access point is obstructed at any point, there
are additional ways to cross the road with pedestrian crossings and traffic lights.
Broken glass, bottles, cans, rubbish, stones, fists thrown

(Hazard = Something that


has the potential to cause
harm. Consider such things
as: use of electricity, use of
power tools; lifting heavy
items; creating dust; using
flammable or toxic chemicals
i.e. cleaning fluids, glues etc,
using ladders, fixings at
height etc.)

5. List who might be


harmed by the
hazards identified

Cast, Crew & Public

(e.g. staff, students, visitors,


consider numbers at risk)

6. How might they be


harmed?
(Type of injury or health
problem that might result i.e.
cuts, bruises, fractures,
electric shock, burns etc.)

7. List control
measures in place to
reduce risks to an
acceptable standard
(Control measures should
ultimately reduce the overall
risk. Do not purely rely upon
providing Personal Protective
Equipment)

Litter left by others such as glass bottles and cans etc. may cause minor cuts or
scratches. Falling on or kicking gravel / stones may also cause minor injury.
Careless acting may lead to other cast being hit during fights. Public involvement
during fights may cause minor injury or bruising to cast, crew or public.

We can carry out a location recce before we begin filming to ensure the location is
free of any harmful material. Orientate and advise cast & crew of the potential
hazards including kicking gravel and choreography of the fight scenes. The crew
can wear Hi-Vis jackets signing that we are a production team, additionally
production runners can stay alert and be aware of any member of the public who
are concerned by our actions, then reassure & advise them of our wellbeing.
