On Monday 4 April, Screen Ireland, the country’s audiovisual agency, unveiled Screen Pass, a brand-new online self-led health and safety training course which will be available free of charge for all professionals working in the Irish screen sector.

Moreover, the training course was developed with input from key industry stakeholders and professionals such as Karen Cummins, Health & Safety Consultant with the Chris Mee Group, representatives from Screen Guilds of Ireland and Jo Homewood, Line Producer.
In detail, the course will cover critical topics such as “promoting a safety culture, duties and responsibilities of employers and employees, hazard identification, risk assessments and personal health and well-being.”
