As cast and talent return to film sets for movies and TV, many industry workers have been concerned about their health and safety. Fortunately, a recent partnership between tech startup Tapple and production staffing group The Bench is allowing crews to resume work with confidence.

LA county's reopening intensive protocol for music, television and film production, otherwise known as Appendix J, has led to the necessity of a new crew member on set - the Covid Compliance Officer. CCO’s have many different tasks on set, ranging from wiping down surfaces and providing masks to planning one-way routes to limit foot traffic.

The Bench connects CCOs with production companies and outfits them with Tapple’s Touchless Health Screener to provide contactless daily health screening with the highest levels of data security.

Tapple’s Touchless Health Screener keeps data safe at every step of the way thanks to end-to-end data encryption and multi-factor authentication. An identity verification feature allows CCOs to quickly and easily search the database and retrieve validated contact information for workers should someone report a Covid-19 illness.

Not only does it help them keep everyone safe and protect their data, it’s offered as a non-subscription service, which means CCOs only pay to use it when they need it.

Sophia Patten, The Bench’s Regional Director, called Tapple “the missing link” when describing how Tapple supports their efforts for site safety. The product helps create a streamlined screening process for crew, eliminating long lines at call times and making contact tracing quick and effective. Tapple is currently in use on live production sets supporting major brands including Nike, Hulu, and HBO.
