Alert Notice on Temporary Structures Published by SCOSS

2012-01-11 - UK - The Standing Committee on Structural Safety (SCOSS) is the independent body established in 1976 to maintain a continuing review of building and civil engineering matters affecting the safety of structures in the UK.   SCOSS aims to identify in advance those trends and developments which might contribute to an increasing risk to structural safety.

SCOSS has published a 4-page Alert on Temporary Stage Structures that discusses the ramifications of the numerous stage structure collapses that plagued the entertainment production industry over the past few years.  The report highlights the required and recommended procedures for engineering temporary stage structures in the UK.  Although this is a UK based organization, the guidelines discussed and referenced in the document are good reference information for anyone involved in the show industry.

The Alert can be downloaded here:
