Education and repetition.

You learn/train with an unloaded gun - that you still check every time it is handed to you. Until it is almost a reflex action that you check the gun as soon as it is handed to you.

You learn to load and unload the weapon yourself - with trained eyes watching.

Then you fire the weapon.

Now, I'm not naive enough to think that happens every single time at every single range, like at a less professional place or when two instructors are alternating shooting the same weapon - even they should still check it.

But ANY time any gun capable of firing is to be pointed at someone for a movie? It should be checked every single time and then rechecked by every single person that handles it.
