Rigging Training

Your venue's safety depends on your entire team. From performers to crew to the head rigger, everyone needs the information and training to do their job safely.  

These areas of concern include knowing how to safely work backstage, how to safely rig from battens and grids, safe operation of machinery, handling scenic elements, executing special effects and performer flying, and how to identify potentially unsafe equipment in your venue.

Topics Include:

  • Understanding your venue's rigging systems
  • Knowing your Equipment: materials, hardware, and fittings
  • Fall Arrest Systems: OSHA compliance and worker safety
  • Safety Planning: understanding breaking strength and load ratings
  • Venue Inspections and reporting practices
  • System and equipment operation & maintenance

Safer Venue's Trainers are skilled in taking your staff through customized hands-on training sessions and practical exercises designed to specifically address the challenges of your entertainment roster and performance space. Every single training session is customized to the equipment in the venue & the number & knowledge level of it’s staff, ranging from single basic courses to multi-level in-depth training.

Training programs can include select members of your staff, or can encompass your entire team. Each session is fully customized to provide the most applicable and relevant information for each department.
