The 62-year-old man was on the set at Shepperton Studios - where the current James Bond film is being made - when he plunged over three metres to the floor.
He suffered heavy bruising and suspected broken ribs in the fall through an opening in the floor that had not been properly guarded, however steps were taken to address this problem after the incident occurred.
An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) observed the set had been built without edge protection in an effort to make it look more realistic.
HSE inspector Stephen Green stated the male had been "lucky" not to have sustained more serious injuries.
"The company was aware there were unguarded edges on the set. Some areas had temporary protection added, but there was no full assessment of the whole set," he added.
