theater rigging inspection

A periodic inspection of your venue’s rigging reduces your liability risk and insures your facility is safe to operate.

Whether your system consists only of dead-hung battens, a full manual counterweight system, a motorized system, or a combination of all of these, the rigging system in your facility is vital to the success of your productions and your program.  It also has the potential of being the most dangerous system in your facility.  Comprehensive, regular inspections of your rigging system, along with regular maintenance and training, is an excellent way to protect you and your facility.

StageLight’s Rigging System Safety Inspections are performed by an ETCP Certified Rigger.  Our inspector will examine all of the components of your rigging system for any problems that, if left unattended, could lead to failure of the system to perform correctly and safely.  Depending on the size and complexity of your system, the inspection can take as little as one day, and our inspector will provide a written, detailed report stating the findings as well as recommendations for repairs or replacements that may be necessary.

USITT Rigging Initiative

Safety should be the number one priority in your theatre, especially when students are involved.  In recognition of this, the United States Institute for Theatre Technology has a Rigging Safety Initiative which encourages secondary schools to apply for a rigging inspection, with the costs covered by USITT.  You or your school do not have to be USITT members to apply.
