ANSI E1.42 – 2016, Entertainment Technology – Installed Stage Lift Safety Standard Stage lifts, such as orchestra pit or theatre forestage lifts, are not the subject of any current national standard. As result, safety requirements and inspections of them are inconsistent. ANSI E1.42 is a standard for stage lifts that can be referenced by the IBC and NFPA. The scope is limited to safety and to lifts that are installed as a part of the building, and that are not purpose-built for a single theatrical production.
