Risk Assessments

Risks cannot be effectively managed unless you are aware of them and understand their potential. Risk assessments are the foundation of effective risk management because they identify and assess the risks involved in film production that need to be managed.

GFS risk assessments set the benchmark for screen productions internationally, are recognized by major insurance companies and have been awarded by leading international and national bodies for risk professionals.

Our risk assessments always include recommendations about the specific risk management plans you should develop to effectively manage your security, health and safety, medical and Covid-19 risks.

Products & Services

Comprehensive Risk Assessment

Our Comprehensive Risk Assessments are delivered by specialist health and safety and security experts. They provide independent, expert advice on your film production or project’s exposure to risk – from identifying issues that could potentially damage your reputation to hazards that could threaten the physical safety of your team and crew members.

We analyze the security, safety, medical and reputational risks associated with your location, planned activities and logistics. This takes into consideration geopolitical trends and conflicts, access to medical facilities and the prevalence of disease, and any activities taking place in challenging environments, such as water-based or alpine endeavors.

We then provide recommendations for minimizing your risks and the GFS risk management plans and services that can assist you. Your production will receive an industry-recognized Certificate of Risk Assessment and License, which helps satisfy your insurer that you are observing international best practices in risk management.

Covid-19 Risk Assessment

Covid-19 Risk Assessments are for productions and projects that do not require a Comprehensive Risk Assessment. We assess your Covid-19 risk based on ongoing monitoring of outbreaks and vaccination trends, and our extensive prior experience working with productions during the pandemic.

Within our assessment, we provide recommendations about the steps you should take to minimize your risk and the GFS risk management plans and services that can assist you.

We make recommendations on how to adhere to best practices and industry standards if your current or proposed risk mitigation control methods are inadequate.
