Although since 24th February 2022 people who test positive for COVID are no longer legally required to self-isolate, at Target3D we understand that COVID remains a live threat to productions and to the people working on them so advise that all parties still follow the same guidance and recommendations despite the legal change:
If you develop COVID-19 symptoms, self-isolate immediately and get a PCR test, even if your symptoms are mild. People who test positive should stay at home and avoid contact with other people for at least 5 full days and continue to isolate until they have 2 negative tests 24 hours apart on consecutive days.
HELPING OUR PEOPLE STAY SAFE DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
The safety of our cast, crew and contributors is our highest priority. In order to ensure the
health and safety of our people during the continued pandemic we have carefully
assessed the risks of COVID-19 during production with reference to government and
In order to reduce those risks identified, as far as reasonably practicable, we will implement
a package of control measures that will be in place during all stages of our productions.
How we are keeping people safe.
We are focusing on the following areas to ensure we can manage the risks of infection from
COVID-19, carrying out specific assessments where necessary.
IN OUR OFFICES:
■ Minimising - minimising the number of people in our offices at any time.
■ Communicating - ensuring those who have symptoms or are ill know not to come into
work and to return home immediately if they become ill at work.
■ Commuting - considering the risks in commuting especially on public transport,
introducing mitigations such as staggered start times.
■ Cleaning - increasing the frequency of cleaning.
■ Face covering - supporting our people in the safe wearing of face coverings on a
commute and in scenarios where they choose to wear.
DURING OUR PRODUCTION ACTIVITIES:
■ Travel - seeking to minimise travel requirements wherever possible.
■ Location - considering the physical capacity of space used as well as ensuring the
provision of adequate hygiene facilities.
■ Work Activities - considering the activities that people are going to need to undertake
across roles in a production and if these can be adapted or changed to reduce risk.
■ Work Equipment - managing the sharing of work equipment which is key to production
from cameras and headsets to edit suites. Focusing on good hygiene and managing
potential issues with touchpoints.
■ Work Patterns - reviewing work patterns to encourage fixed teams (cohorts) of people
who don’t come into contact with other groups.
■ Catering and Rest Areas - reconfiguring catering provision and planning breaks to ensure
our people are as safe as possible.
■ First Aid and Emergency services - planning activities to reduce the risk of requiring
emergency services to be called as well as advice to first aiders on COVID-19 risk.
■ Masks - as per the APA COVID Shooting and Office Guidelines.
■ Mental Health - the COVID-19 risk and the response has had a potential Mental Health
impact for those working on productions which should be considered. Those having to
work at home may feel isolated with those on set perhaps feeling fearful and anxious of
■ Monitoring - compliance will be monitored and if required people will be reminded ofthe COVID-19
