Safety & Medical
Once you understand your risk, control it with the best expertise in the marketplace. GFS’s highly-qualified safety consultants and medics seamlessly integrate into your production team to implement your risk management plans on location. They come equipped with tools tailored to your specific safety and medical needs so that you can focus on creative success.
We have a global network of experts that have been deployed to locations on nearly every continent, ranging from the jungles of Southeast Asia to remote interior Alaska. Our expertise includes:
- Covid-19 safety and compliance
- Medical practice (doctors, nurses, paramedics and emergency medical technicians)
- Alpine and wilderness safety
- Water and diving safety
- Traffic management
- Stunt coordination
Many of our consultants are multi-skilled and can provide both safety consultancy and medic services to keep your team safe and healthy.
If you don’t require consultants on location, but still need safety and medical support, our risk assessments and risk management plans provide all of the policies, protocols, procedures and guidelines (PPPGs) you need to manage your safety and medical risks.
GFS offers four levels of Covid-19 safety officers including health safety directors, supervisors, managers and administrators (also referred to as Covid-19 compliance officers). These expert consultants develop the policies, protocols, procedures and guidelines (PPPGs) that are recommended in your Covid-19 risk assessment or implement the PPPGs that are detailed in your Covid-19 risk management plan on location.
All of our consultants in senior roles (directors, supervisors and managers) are medically trained and qualified in infectious disease control.
GFS’s highly-experienced safety consultants are drawn from around the globe and have diverse skillsets. Their backgrounds include mountaineering and guiding, water safety, diving, ski patrol, fire and rescue, traffic management, stunt coordination, and military services. They work with you to integrate proactive safety strategies into your production and to respond to any emerging issues or crises, ensuring that your project can operate safely in any environment.
Medics are invaluable assets to projects undertaking high-risk activities or operating in a foreign location. GFS’s pre-vetted field medics are world-class and able to operate in any environment, from the sound stage to the remote wilderness. The placement of a field medic will assist you to reduce the impact of any injuries or illness, and monitor the overall health of your team on location or on set. They will also work alongside your senior management to respond to any medical emergency.
We are able to deploy the full spectrum of qualified and experienced medical expertise, including doctors, nurses, paramedics, and emergency medical technicians. Many are multi-skilled and all are highly experienced.
