Abstract Studies of Queensland's film, television and new media industry demonstrate that OHS is not appropriately managed in some sectors of the industry. Of particular note is a lack of understanding of legislation, a failure to conduct risk assessments and to establish effective OHS systems and programs. Although there is a commitment among industry workers to improve their OHS performance and culture, many lack the basic skills and knowledge with which to achieve this goal. This paper proposes that a general safety induction course is provided for all workers entering Queensland's film, television and new media workforce. It discusses the challenges of implementing such a strategy, the benefits that would accrue from the scheme and proposes further action for implementation.
