The present report is meant to be an assessment of OHS in the performing arts. Four main objectives underlie the research efforts: knowledge of producers’ OHS needs; assessment and analysis of employment injuries; causes of accidents; and the health paths of artists and artisans. This document is the culmination of a convergence analysis of different data sources: literature review; focus group interviews and individual interviews with artists, artisans and producers in the field; analysis of documents or databases; and observation of different productions. The research team studied the work
of artists and artisans in the theatre, music/variety, dance and circus fields. The results made it possible to develop an analytical model of the determinants of prevention and OHS in the performing arts. The model will allow stakeholders to discern the microscopic and macroscopic issues that have an impact on prevention. Among organizational conditions taken into account in this model are: the importance of planning all the activities of cultural enterprises; the stability of teams and crews despite the presence of a high rate of freelancers and self-employed workers; and training programs.
