Indiana DOL References ANSI E1.21
2012-02-09

On February 8, the Indiana Department of Labor announced the citations it has issued related to the Indiana State Fair stage collapse, which occurred on 13 August 2011. Links to the press release, the three safety citations, a recording of the press conference, and various other supporting documents are available on the Department of Labor website at http://www.in.gov/dol/2367.htm. Complete scans of the official "Safety Order and Notification of Penalty" documents issued against Mid-America Sound Corporation, IATSE Local 30, and the Indiana State Fair Commission are provided. Failure to follow the requirements of ANSI E1.21 is a major part of the findings. The efficacy of the consensus standard's inspection requirements is noted at about the 51-minute mark in the press conference audio recording.

PLASA has made ANSI E1.21 and ANSI E1.2, covering roof structures and aluminum tower and truss components respectively, available for free on Entertainment Industry Safety Initiative website (http://safetyinentertainment.org/). The free copies are watermarked and copying is disabled. Unwatermarked, copy-enabled editions are available for purchase from The ESTA Foundation at http://www.estafoundation.org/pubs.htm. Purchases made from The ESTA Foundation help to fund the Foundation's charitable work.
