    The world’s most dangerous film sets


    Being a Hollywood film star isn’t necessarily everything it’s cracked up to be. Aside from the occasional devastatingly harsh reviews, the constant pressure to always look your best and the hordes of people watching your every move, the work itself is not always as glamorous as it seems.

    In fact, working on location can often be a fraught experience riddled with risks and with the constant threat of an accident at work looming large. The following sets, in particular, earned fully justified reputations as places to avoid.

    The Abyss

    In a case of life almost imitating art, director James Cameron filmed large sections of this movie at an abandoned nuclear power plant in South Carolina, America.

    Whilst the film’s protagonists were dispatched on a mission to locate a lost nuclear submarine, the crew and actors playing these roles were no doubt keen to avoid workplace accidents, particularly industrial spillages at work.

    Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol

    The trouble with making a series of films is that the stunts simply have to keep getting bigger and better. Nowhere is this better demonstrated then in the third installment of the Mission: Impossible series, which sees Tom Cruise swinging from the Burj Khalifa building in Dubai.

    Standing at 164 storeys, it’s the tallest building in the world and the last place you’d want to suffer an injury at work.

    The Expendables 2

    A couple of hours of action heroes, both past and present, blowing things up with increasingly dramatic explosions makes for an entertaining film, but it came at a tragic cost.

    A staged explosion on a rubber boat went wrong and took the life of one stuntman while leaving another in a critical condition.

    The Conquerer

    Never has the picture of industry-related illness and its perils been as clearly painted as in the story of Howard Hughes’ 1956 warlord action adventure.

    Two hundred people worked on location in Utah. Out of those, 91 contracted cancer. This was triple the amount doctors said could be expected, and the suffering was widely attributed to the radioactive fallout from atom bomb tests being carried out upwind in Nevada.

    Making a claim for a workplace accident

    Wherever you work, you are entitled to be able to perform your duties in a safe environment where risks have been both analysed and minimised.

    If you suffer an accident at work, Accident Advice Helpline can help with your claim for work injury compensation.
