Home law Producers of Alec Baldwin Movie “Rust” Where Filmmaker Was Killed Fined $136,793...

It won’t be much consolation to the family of dead cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. But the New Mexico Environment Department’s Occupational Health and Safety Bureau (OHSB) has fined the producers of the Alec Baldwin movie “Rust” $136,793 for Hutchins’ “avoidable” death last winter on set.

You may recall that Baldwin allegedly fired a gun that was loaded with real bullets, or didn’t fire the gun but it discharged, killing Hutchins and wounding the film’s director.

Quoting from the OHSB’s press release: “The report concludes that Rust Movie Productions, LLC
management knew that firearm safety procedures were not being followed on set and demonstrated plain indifference to employee safety by failing to review work practices and take corrective action.”

Environment Cabinet Secretary James Kenney said: “Our investigation found that this tragic incident never would have happened if Rust Movie Productions, LLC had followed national film industry standards for firearm safety,” said “This is a complete failure of the employer to follow recognized national protocols that keep employees safe.”
