Boats, Water, and Lifeguards

WATER SAFETY ON SET

All cast and crew members working on or near water should exercise caution. If you are on a vessel, all cast and crew MUST wear life vests. If any cast or crew are going into any body of water, a lifeguard must be present. For guidelines regarding actors or crew filming in water, see Lifeguards.

When using watercraft be aware of load and rider capacity limits. Only required personnel should be on watercraft; all others should remain on land. Safety lines, nets, watch safety personnel and/or divers should be used when filming in rivers or other bodies of water where potentially hazardous conditions could exist (e.g., swift currents, thick underwater plant life, or rocks). 

During your Production Administration approval meeting, you will be given all the safety requirements necessary to receive permission.
