Health & Safety Services for the

Film & Television Industry

Welcome to

Action Safety

Action Safety's founder

Action Safety Ltd was established in 2007 by Jim Ranyard, a former staff member at Yorkshire Television in Leeds where he worked for 25 years in television and film production. Originally a member of the award winning YTV Film Department, Jim worked as a boom operator and sound recordist on a huge variety of productions in all genres, including documentary, drama, education, children's television and news, features and current affairs. He also worked as a technical supervisor, planning and organising outside broadcasts, managing crewing and supervising a busy department.


Jim began working with the Health and Safety Department and safety committee at YTV as regional programmes representative, and obtained his first Nebosh qualification through the Granada Group training scheme. Due to reorganisation and downsizing of ITV staff in 2005, Jim left YTV and studied for the Nebosh Level 6 Diploma in Occupational Safety and Health, founding Action Safety Ltd in 2007.


Action Safety provides health and safety services, training, support and advice in the film, television, theatre and the entertainments industries. Drawing on thirty-nine years of production experience and utilising the services of many highly experienced professionals from the television and film industry, we strive to ensure the best possible service is given to clients at the most reasonable rates.


Our aim is to assist productions, production companies and individuals in carrying out their health and safety duties competently and adequately, producing only relevant paperwork with a minimum of disruption to the production process. We believe that health and safety activity can be included in the daily routine without making it into a big deal while at the same time reducing the risk of accidents and ill health at work and fulfilling the requirements of the law.





How we can help...

We provide our clients with basic through to comprehensive health & safety services - we can write your health & safety policy and associated documentation, carry out company and production risk assessments, assist with contractor pre-vetting, health and safety training, on-set safety advice and safety supervision. We attend recces and survey your locations for hazards. Our forms are as simple and straightforward as possible while complying with legal requirements.


We also arrange water safety services including camera boats, safety boats and crews, marine co-ordination, and HSE qualified dive teams.


We supply unit medics and first aid training (courses delivered at your premises).


Our services cover most of the background health and safety work you need in order to comply with your legal duties as an employer, allowing you and your staff more time to get on with the business of film making.
