Midnight Rider: Sarah Jones Safety App Debuts

The late Sarah Jones, the camera assistant killed on the “Midnight Rider” set, has been honored with a free “Set Safety” app.

The app debuted Friday for Android users,  the “Pledge to Sarah” safety awareness group announced, adding that it expected the app to become available soon at the Apple platform.

The “Set Safety” app includes access to safety hotlines for reporting unsafe working conditions and access to Contract Services Administration Trust Fund safety bulletins.

The app also is designed so that photographic evidence of safety and time card violations can be sent anonymously to industry organizations.

The “Pledge to Sarah” group raised the funds via an Indiegogo campaign.

Jones’ death has sparked heightened awareness about safety issues within the below-the-line community.

Earlier this week, a Georgia judge scheduled March 9 as the start date for the trial of four defendants facing criminal charges related to the  Feb. 20 death of Jones and other injuries on the set.

Director Randall Miller, producer Jody Savin, executive producer Jay Sedrish and first assistant director Hillary Schwartz face charges of involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespass. Each has pleaded not guilty.
