The Event Safety Alliance is a group of entertainment industry leaders that have come together to address the immediate need for universal safety standards for the production of live events. The newly formed group is based out of Austin, Texas and has posted a web site with more information.
Check them out and sign-up for their newsletter at: http://eventsafetyalliance.org/
They are also hooked-up with Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.
The groups is so new they don't even have a logo yet [updated: see above!], the ink is still drying on the bits, but they are tackling event safety head-on and plan to publish a Best Practices Guide in the near future.
