United Kingdom (July 23, 2020)—New COVID-19 guidelines for safe audio production during the pandemic have been released by AudioUK, a UK-based trade organization for independent radio, podcast and audiobook production companies.
The 15-page report, Keeping Workers and Customers Safe during COVID-19 – Guidelines for use by UK audio production companies, was prepared in consultation with the Department for Digital, Culture Media and Sport (DCMS), along with input from audio professionals, content producers and broadcasters, the music industry, industry bodies, unions and others. As the pandemic is global, many of the guidelines are applicable to audio production facilities and workers around the world.
AudioUK’s 100-plus member companies previously had access to a ‘beta’ version of the guidelines, prepared using the latest UK government advice. AudioUK is a member of the DCMS working group on film, TV and content production, which the DCMS has used to provide support and advice to representatives of content production from across film, TV, video games, music and audio.
