Comprehensive Training & Safety

The cornerstone of event safety begins with thorough and effective crew training programs. Silverback ensures that our event crew are not only experienced across a number of disciplines but also qualified in their respective fields. Our training includes health and safety regulations, technical skills for operating plant machinery, and specialised skills such as handling follow-spot equipment. By investing in comprehensive training for our crew, our Silverbacks are prepared to handle any challenges they might encounter on the job, reducing the risk of accidents and providing a secure environment for crew and attendees alike.

From general event crewing to more specialised roles like audio/visual setups, our ability to provide expert crews familiar with the particular demands of an industry sets us apart from the crowd. This level of expertise is invaluable in environments such as TV & film production, where understanding the nuances and pace of the industry plays a significant role in ensuring efficiency.

We work closely with our clients to tailor our services to the specific needs of the event. This meticulous planning process involves risk assessments, logistical planning, and coordination with other vendors, ensuring that every aspect of the event is managed with the precision you come to expect working with us.

I am so pleased to have had your guys on site today. They were very professional, and no job was too big or too small. They only stopped occasionally when I asked them to, as I felt they must need a break/drink but if I didn’t ask, I think they would have just carried on…… They were fantastic and couldn’t have been more helpful.”
