FilmBrazil's Health and Safety Protocol Welcomes Back Production


FilmBrazil studied the protocols of the USA, UK, Uruguay, Chile, Portugal, Spain and Indonesia to ensure a safe return to production

FilmBrazil's Health and Safety Protocol Welcomes Back Production

In collaboration with local Unions (SIAESP and SINDCINE), Film Brazil developed the Health and Safety Protocols for all production of Audiovisual work in Brazil. Such Protocol went through approval from the Department of Health of the states of Sao Paulo, Rio Grande do Sul, Rio de Janeiro and Santa Catarina. 

As the sector enters a new phase of reopening for business, this document serves as a guideline to protect everyone's health, when returning to work, as well as the health of clients and partners.  

Film Brazil based the experiences of other countries. It studied the protocols of the USA, UK, Uruguay, Chile, Portugal, Spain and Indonesia.

Furthermore, health professionals were consulted to counsel on preventive measures and the appropriate use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and collective protective equipment (EPC).

Following the pillars of distancing, hygiene, disinfection, communication and monitoring, the protocol is divided into three phases: 

1. Remote Production

2. Max. 20 people crews & Reduced working hours

3. To be determined based on Phases 1 & 2

Film Brazil created this document to serve as a reference for the sector, keeping everyone's safety in mind for every single person involved in the audiovisual industry.

In spite of the country's current circumstances, all of APRO/FILMBRAZIL members are being trained on how to properly and responsibly follow the protocols. Every production goes through Covid testing measures and APRO is relying on LAB information to create statistical information to help improve tracing and prevention.  

Apro/Film Brazil welcomes clients to Brazil for their next production, always keeping front and center your health and safety.
