Providing commentary about the content of The US Event Safety Guide Draft will help the editors to expand and improve this body of work. Please take the time to read the guide and contribute your knowledge and experience toward making the guide's content relevant to your work.
Currently, most of the guide is authored around the commercial concert industry, but it can just as easily be applied to educational and non-profit theatre production. As a participant in your industry it is incumbent upon you help define your working environment. Almost everything in the guide applies to you and your venue.
The ESA is a non-profit organization and is funded through donations. Please take a moment and move a few of your hard-earned dollars their way. Consider it a down-payment on your life, as the efforts of this alliance's members may be clearing the way for a safer workspace for us all.
As an incentive to 'Do the right thing', I'll send a free Theatre Safety Blog Teq-Shirt to anyone who can confirm their donation of $100 or more to the ESA in the month of February, 2013.
