Helping Events Reopen Safely in Illinois and Nationwide

As states and cities take steps to open businesses, and face-to-face meetings grow closer to returning, Complete Crewing is poised to resume providing our high level, complete staffing solutions for production and AV companies.  We have spent the last three months sharpening our tools and making sure that our crews can operate safely in this new landscape.  We are familiar with local and national operating guidelines, and will be taking every step to ensure the safety of our labor and production crews, and our clients.  

Supporting Events in Chicago and Nationwide

Our entire staff of OSHA-30 certified labor coordinators are trained and ready to get back to business.  When you partner with us, and trust us to hire and manage the A-list crew your event deserves, we become the employer of record.  As such, we have protocols in place to  follow health authority guidelines and ensure the proper use of all the personal protective equipment (PPE) that staff need to protect themselves.  So go ahead and check “crew safety planning” off of your to-do list.  Complete Crewing is ready to streamline the process, making sure that your event is flawless, memorable, and safe.

Reopening Resources

While we are based in Chicago, for over twenty years we’ve provided production labor services for events from Los Angeles, CA, to Boston, MA.  No matter where you want your event, or how many cities and venues you need, we can guarantee skilled staff that come with excellent client feedback.

There is a lot of information out there and it continues to change.  We’ve gathered a few resources that we think do a good job at helping businesses understand what they need to know to operate in this new landscape.  We will continue monitoring all resources, to best position our company and to best help you.

Event Safety Alliance

The ESA released “The Event Safety Alliance Reopening Guide,” which is available for free.  The guide provides advice for event planners and venues on how to safely resume operations.  It calls for everyone to follow health authorities such as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), and shares suggestions for everyone’s consideration.
