Glass

< Back

Using locations, sets, set dressing or props which involve the handling of, or working near glass objects or architectural / structural glass creates a potentially hazardous situation for cast, crew and spectators.

Check all architectural and/or structural glass carefully to assure that it is approved safety glass. Mark all glass doors, panels, and other large areas of glass, at or near ground level or at entryways with large, white tape “Xs” to enhance their visibility.

Cabinet or showcase glass, glass tables, glass decorative panes or partitions, lamps or hanging glass fixtures, glass sculptures, glass picture frames, glass or china dishes, and other hand-held glass objects need special consideration. Consider removing them and replacing them with plastic or “candy-glass” objects.
