Techs pass safety program

Program set up following 2003 Basic Crafts negotiations

More than 30,000 L.A.-based technicians and crafts persons have completed training in the entertainment industry’s Safety Pass Program, administrators have announced.

Program was set up following the 2003 Basic Crafts negotiations covering members of the Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees. Since then, individuals have taken over 190,000 safety classes totaling over 500,000 training hours.

Contract Services Administration Training Trust Fund based the program as an expansion of the “Safety Passport” program developed by health and safety reps employed by the major studios.

Ingrid Lohne, exec director of the fund, said a majority of below-the-line Los Angeles-based employees have now completed their training but added that the effort will continue to accommodate those new to the industry and others who have not yet completed the training.
