This code of conduct is to let mentor know when to set bounderies, things they can do and those they aren’t allowed to do. As a mentor you don’t want your mentees to get to used to you or make you one of their friends, even though the mentoring session is a two way thing whereby the mentees are learning but aslo the mentor is learn too.

3.  What health and safety considerations have you considered for working in the TV studio?

The first health and safety consideration is to make sure all the cable hunging around are tapped on the floor to prevent the floor manager and presenters from tripping on them during a live recording session.

The second health and safety consideration is to make sure that every one who uses the ladder in the studio has to have ladder training as the university doesn’t cover any damages or if some one falls off the ladder. so its alway good to have some one with you to help hold the ladder as you climb on top to avoid accidents.
