Please note: In light of Covid-19 we have a duty of care to people taking part in Manchester Histories DigiFest 2020. This includes, contributors, our staff, volunteers, and audiences. Manchester Histories will work on-line or remotely as much as possible to reduce risk in making any content, or invite people in to the live studio stream.
The steering group will also strive to ensure that the content produced or presented will be as accessible as possible for our audiences. For people who do not have access to computers, we will showcase the work on a big screen and provide a space where audiences can view the live stream. All the content will be recorded, with the possibility of showcasing at a later time for more people to enjoy at an event gathering, once social distancing measures have been relaxed.
For the making of the content and the live stream we will still practice social distancing and have appropriate hygiene controls in place if still required at the time of broadcast.
The staff team will carry out a risk assessment if physical gathering is required. This will include consideration of the health risks and the following:
· Ensure there are adequate facilities to enable hand washing
· Keep a distance of 2 metres between people
· Follow ‘social distancing’ as per the Government’s advice
· Brief teams about the latest advice for reducing the spread of the infection and what to do if someone is ill
· Review and modify set design to reduce both the requirement for close working and time to rig the studio
· Ensure cleaning and use of technical equipment follows government/industry guidelines.
