Rigging Inspections

Does your facility really need an annual rigging inspection? The answer is yes. Careful and frequent inspections reflect prudent safety management. Let the experts at IAStage help you create the safest environment possible for your students, faculty, staff, and audience.

What's included?
IAStage will conduct a comprehensive visual inspection of your facility’s line-set components, including tracks, lighting raceways, fire curtain, acoustic draperies, rigging and attachment hardware. You will receive a written report with photo documentation of the inspection; recommendations for maintenance, repairs, and/or upgrades; and budget pricing for recommended repairs and upgrades.

How will you benefit?
According to OSHA, the first and best strategy for hazard prevention is to control the hazard at its source. Keep your students, staff, and audience safe by identifying and correcting hazards before accidents happen.

Adhering to recommended industry standards is a great way to limit owner liability in the event of an accident. Make annual rigging inspections part of your risk management/accident prevention program.
