New Powered Rigging Project
2006-10-19

The Rigging Working Group voted to start another powered rigging project at its meeting on 18 October 2006 at the Las Vegas Hilton. BSR E1.6-3, Safe Use of Serial Manufactured Electric Chain Hoists in the Entertainment Industry, is intended to give guidance (as the title suggests) on the operation and safe use of serial manufactured electric link chain hoists having capacities of two tons or less and used in the entertainment industry. This document will not cover the hoists themselves, but only how to use them in a manner that limits risk to an acceptable level.

Anyone interested in working on the BSR E1.6-3 project is invited to become involved, either by joining the Rigging Working Group or by commenting on the draft document when it is available for public review. Membership in the working group is open to all who are affected by the work of the group. There is no fee, and membership in ESTA or any other organization is not a requirement, but voting members are required to attend meetings regularly and to vote on letter ballots. The Rigging Working Group is particularly interested in having people who would represent a dealer or rental company join as voting members. This would help maintain a balance of interests in the working group. Information about joining a working group is available on the ESTA website at http://www.esta.org/tsp/working_groups/index.html .
