Link Three Media and its employees, contractors and freelancers are all required to follow the Public Health guidelines that are in place in the province and region in which our photo and video shoots are taking place. We are also taking our own extra measures to ensure the safety of ourselves, our families and our clients.
The following are some guidelines that Link Three Media has created. Above all, our mandate is to follow the specific rules of the local Public Health and government experts of the areas that we are filming in.
Link Three Media COVID-19 Guidelines for all staff and crew:
- If you are sick: (fever, dry cough, difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, headache, muscle aches, fatigue, vomiting or diarrhea for more than 24 hours), DO NOT come to work.
- Inform Quinn Corkal (owner) if you have recently been in contact with someone who has COVID-19 symptoms.
- Wash your hands frequently while on set.
- Wear recommended face coverings in accordance with the local Public Health guidelines and/or the building you are in.
- Maintain Physical Distancing.
- Clean your space and your equipment.
Instructions to our crew members when setting up photo and video shoots:
- Make sure hand sanitizer and/or sanitizing spray is readily available, and used frequently.
- Use a boom mic when possible to encourage safe distancing.
- If you have to put a mic on someone, first sanitize the mic, and then ask the talent to clip the mic on themselves. If the mic needs adjusting, verbally instruct them on how to adjust it.
- Ensure there is access to a hand washing station/washroom with soap and water.
Screening our clients:
- Prior to booking a photo or video shoot, we are asking questions to ensure that no one in the scheduled group is sick. This includes their own symptoms as well as a travel history and their history of exposure to others with possible COVID-19 symptoms.
- For groups that live together (a family unit), no social distancing between them is required.
- When photographing people that do not live together, we require that they must maintain a distance of at least 2 metres (6 feet) between those groups.
- Keep two metres between your crew and your clients
- When posing your clients your directions must be verbal and/or example with “no touch” posing as much as possible.
Your right to refuse work:
The Occupational Health and Safety Act provides a worker with the right to refuse work that they believe is unsafe.
If you refuse work that is unsafe, you must promptly report the circumstances to Quinn Corkal (owner).
A note to crew and clients:
It is the responsibility of all parties involved to ensure these guidelines are being followed. If someone is not following these guidelines, please inform Quinn Corkal (owner) so he can take appropriate action.
Thank you for your cooperation and stay safe.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
