NEW REQUIREMENT FOR ALL BACKGROUND PERFORMERS!! URGENT! VERY Important!
AS OF JUlY 1, 2014 YOU CANNOT WORK or go on set unless this has been COMPLETED!
IT IS FREE AND TAKES 40 MINS TO COMPLETE do it today!
IT IS MANDATORY IN ORDER TO WORK!
You will need to bring a photocopy of this certificate with you each time you go to a new set. As a backup I would suggest taking picture of it and keeping it on your phone. The Agency will NOT be keeping these copies for you and you will be sent home from the set unless you have it with you at all times! However I would suggest emailing us with it regardless.
Below is the link to the training for WORKERS Only.
In the event a performer is not able to do the online training they can carry the booklet with them, as proof that they have completed that health and safety awareness module.
WHAT YOU NEED TO WORK ON SETS!
1) Residency forms.
As you are aware, production is diligent about getting completed residency forms before releasing cheques to performers. Performers must arrive to set with the proper information in hand. This means that a performer must either bring their driver’s license (we do not require a copy of the license, just the license#) OR they bring a PHOTO COPY of an item such as a bank statement or utility bill – something that has their address on it. A health card is not sufficient.
2) Ministry of Labour.
As of July 1st a hard copy of certification of the Online Safety Course through the Ministry of Labour is required to work in Ontario. This is law – this is not optional. Production wants a copy of this certification from every employee, including BG performers.
